Commentary: A health care plan that Georgians need

It’s the last Friday before Christmas, but even in this holiday season, some major official business continues. Today, a state agency’s board is expected to approve Gov. Brian Kemp’s proposal for changing Medicaid in Georgia.

In a GHN Commentary, Kemp says this waiver plan, and another to revise rules for the health insurance exchange, would make health care coverage more affordable for Georgians.

In the Commentary, the governor reiterates his opposition to Medicaid expansion, which has been proposed as an alternative to his plan. He says his proposals are “Georgia-centric health care reform measures that will lower health care costs and insurance premiums, enhance access to top-notch doctors and facilities, and ultimately improve health outcomes for Georgia families.’’
