Jim Justice on Health Care

 

 


We can all agree on protection for preexisting conditions

You know, our citizens of this state deserve good stuff. One of the things they surely deserve is affordable health care coverage. Which is why today I'm asking the legislature to ensure that the people with preexisting conditions in this state, even though you may have loved ObamaCare, or maybe you didn't, surely all of us can agree on one thing, and that is just this. West Virginians should be protected against preexisting conditions.

Establish Medicaid Families First Reserve Fund

Our Medicaid fund has grown way beyond belief. We're on a pace to have an excess in the Medicaid fund of $309 million by year end. What I'm proposing tonight is something that is maybe not never done before, but is surely seldom done. I am proposing tonight that I want to announce legislation to establish the Medicaid Families First Reserve Fund. And I want to lock away $150 million to ensure that we will always have vital services for those that are the most exposed and need the most help.

Don't plan on repealing Obamacare/ACA's Medicaid expansion

A Justice campaign spokesman said he doesn't plan on repealing the program for the expansion population. "Jim will root out waste, fraud and abuse across state government; not something Bill Cole has been able to do," the spokesman wrote in an email. "He will focus on creating jobs to grow revenue to close the Medicaid and other budget gaps. Jim is a businessman who will make a top-to-bottom evaluation of the budget, make responsible decisions and will always protect working families."
