Health care coverage saves lives and helps people stay productive, but many Alaskans have been unable to get the health care they need. The Healthy Alaska Plan presents the path toward affordable, sustainable health care for low-income Alaskans through Medicaid expansion and reform.  Read the Healthy Alaska Plan: A Catalyst for Reform report.
Medicaid expansion will help Alaskans stay healthy while building the health of Alaska’s economy through jobs, federal revenues and savings to the state’s general fund. It will further leverage the Medicaid reforms already underway in Alaska into ongoing savings. Everyone has an interest in ensuring that Alaskans are as productive as possible and can contribute to their communities and economy. People can’t work when they are not healthy. They cannot hunt. They cannot fish. Making sure Alaskans can access medical care is the right thing to do.
