Celebrate the 58th Anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid, 
unite for better healthcare, and share your healthcare story with us!


[Huntington, WV]–  West Virginians have some of the worst healthcare outcomes in the nation. Our Seniors, as well as millions of Americans, need the Inflation Reduction Act’s Medicare negotiations and other improvements to lower drug costs NOW. 

With over 60,000 West Virginians recently removed from Medicaid, families are in need of help navigating Medicaid renewals and filling out additional paperwork requirements. 9th Street Live will provide a fun, family atmosphere that will allow folks to socialize and share their experiences.

Stories have the power to make a difference. Do medical bills or high copays have you struggling? Share your story and help fix our healthcare system. Every year, millions are denied care by their insurers, lose Medicaid, pay too much for Medicare, or are stuck with bills they can’t pay. People stay sick, and too many die. You can make a difference. Share your story at
