Today, a bill was introduced in the Legislature that would close Nebraska’s health coverage gap and fix a problem that currently inflicts high human and financial costs on our state. We hope you’ll act today to show your support.
LB 472, introduced by Senator Kathy Campbell, will create a taskforce to redesign our Medicaid program, and form a plan for more than 54,000 hard-working Nebraskans – people like Amanda – to afford health insurance they desperately need.
LB 472 would:
- Bring more than $1.8 billion of our tax dollars back home to provide health care for tens of thousands of our friends and neighbors.
- Ensure the health care system works better for Nebraskans, lowers medical costs, and boosts our economy by providing thousands of jobs.
- Prevent nearly 500 unnecessary deaths each year by closing the coverage gap and allowing people who desperately need medical care to see a doctor.
It is important your senator know you expect them to close the coverage gap. Contact them today and tell them to support LB 472 and make health care make sense for everyone.
