March 23, 2017
Press Release

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb and seven other governors sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan today in support of the American Health Care Act. The governors cite the flexibility granted to states to cover their unique Medicaid populations and the State and Patient Stability Fund, which will help states stabilize insurance markets and cover vulnerable patients.

Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. released the following statement regarding the letter:

“The American Health Care Act provides states the type of flexibility within Medicaid that conservatives have championed for years,” said Bucshon. “This legislation operates on the premise that states like Indiana are better equipped to make decisions regarding their unique patient populations than unelected bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. Additionally,  the State and Patient Flexibility Fund will provide significant funding to help states stabilize the insurance markets and lower costs for patients. I’m happy to see Governor Holcomb support this common-sense bill.”
