Kansas must close the coverage gap and make sure that all Kansans have access to healthcare. The Medicaid rate was finally increased in 2019, but it was only increased to where the state was ten years ago. Kansas Lawmakers failed to pass Medicaid Expansion again in 2021 and 2022. Kansans need access to affordable healthcare and prescription drugs now more than ever. I voted for Medicaid Expansion, but we continue to get pushback despite the fact that failing to expand Medicaid will actually increase the State General Fund Budget by $68.5 million dollars for fiscal year 2023. We are missing out on federal dollars for healthcare that should be used right here in Kansas. Help me keep working to bring those dollars back to the Sunflower State.
