Making healthcare affordable and accessible by reviving our crippled rural healthcare system and providing access to care for our most vulnerable neighbors.
This session, Georgia House Democrats are proposing the Reviving Our Care (ROC) legislative healthcare package. The Reviving Care package is a group of common-sense reform initiatives to our Medicaid program that would save our crippled rural hospitals and clinics from abandoning their communities and would provide affordable healthcare to our hard-working neighbors and families who have lost their coverage through no fault of their own.
Under Governor Kemp's healthcare plan, Georgia spends $200 million on covering 50,000 residents. In contrast, Georgia House Democrats plan would provide healthcare relief to 500,000 of our neighbors and families for just 1% of our state budget. That means 25% more money than the Governor's plan would cover 10x the number of our community members.
