The EMEE Voices project is seeking to better understand the barriers that prevent black and brown West Virginians from applying for and gaining access to Medicaid. This survey hopes to gain a better understanding of these systems, whether based around stigma or institutional factors, from the perspective of health care experts and providers. Please include as much detail as you can.

If you have any further questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to Mariah Plante (mariah@wvahc.org) or Rhonda Rogombe (rrogombe@wvpolicy.org). Thank you for taking the time to fill this out; we look forward to reading your responses!
