We must protect Medicaid
I wanted to update you on my work to ensure the long-term sustainability of Medicaid.
Medicaid is a critical program designed to provide health security to some of our nation’s most vulnerable patients. However, the Government Accountability Office has identified the Medicaid program as “high risk” and unsustainable in the long run, costing taxpayers $1 trillion by the end of the decade. The current Medicaid program is stretched to the breaking point, denying support to those most in need.
I support efforts to implement commonsense reforms and give states much needed flexibility to better serve their patients most in need. To ensure the future of Medicaid, important steps need to be taken now to focus the program on providing better care for the most vulnerable.
Please do not hesitate to contact me anytime if an issue that concerns you comes before the House.
It's an honor to serve you and Virginia's First District in the People's House.
