Donnelly to Offer Amendment to Protect Medicaid, Including HIP 2.0 and Medicaid Expansion Nationwide
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly today announced that if the Senate moves forward with an effort to repeal the health care law, he will offer an amendment that would protect Medicaid, including HIP 2.0 and the Medicaid expansion nationwide. The Senate health care bill, as currently written, would end HIP 2.0 as we know it, undermining coverage for more than 400,000 Hoosiers, and drastically cut Medicaid, which would impact families, students, adults and children with disabilities, and seniors.
Donnelly said, “More than 400,000 Hoosiers have been able to access health care through HIP 2.0, an innovative, bipartisan plan that I was proud to work with then-Governor Pence to establish. I believe we should work together to improve our health care system, however I will not support efforts that would roll back progress, take away coverage or raise costs for Hoosiers. That’s why I will offer a measure to protect HIP 2.0 and Medicaid if the Senate moves forward in considering the health care bill.”
