CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) – Terry McAuliffe says he plans to expand access to healthcare and combat rising prescription drug costs. The Democrat made the announcements during a stop in Charlottesville Monday, March 8.
McAuliffe, who is running to reclaim the governor’s office, says expanding access to healthcare starts by lowering premiums.
“We need to seek the 1332 waiver for our reinsurance program that we need here in Virginia,” he said.
If elected, McAuliffe says he’ll create a Medicaid buy-in program that will be available on a state-based exchange. He says this will help people who may not qualify for Medicaid
