“I thank Gov. Dayton for his commitment to expanding MinnesotaCare, the backbone of affordable health care across Minnesota, especially in rural communities like the ones I represent,” Lourey said.
“Access to quality, affordable healthcare is the benchmark for success, and this is exactly what Minnesotans will get with this expansion. DFL Senators advocated a similar proposal last session, because MinnesotaCare is a plan that is actually affordable for many Minnesotans. Passage of this plan would restore comprehensive networks in rural Minnesota, and give hope to many Minnesotans who are struggling to keep up with health insurance costs,” Lourey said.
“I look forward to working with my colleagues in the legislature and the administration to develop and pass innovative solutions such as this, to improve our health care marketplace,” Lourey said.
