On Monday, Stacey Abrams announced three new proposals from her health care plan for Georgia. The proposals focus on stabilizing premiums, bringing down Georgia’s infant and maternal mortality rates, and finally, the expansion of Medicaid, which Abrams says would cover nearly 500,000 more Georgians and generate 56,000 new jobs across the state.
“Access to health care is essential for all Georgians to have the freedom and opportunity to thrive,” said Abrams. “As governor, I will help nearly half-a-million uninsured Georgians get covered through expanding Medicaid, adding $8 million dollars a day to our state’s economy and keeping our rural hospitals open. I will also explore a Georgia Premium Stability Program through the Affordable Care Act so Georgians can afford their insurance, and I will expand access to essential health services for women.”
