Jan 7th 2019 5:30 am Response: #396957 The comments below, describe my concerns about and opposition to the proposed changes to Virginia’s Medicaid program. Losing coverage could create a life-threatening obstacle to care for patients with heart disease as these individuals are unlikely to have access to the necessary treatments and medications. Thank you very much for considering my thoughts on this waiver application.
Jan 7th 2019 2:06 pm Response: #396969 I am opposed to certain new burdens included in the proposed 1115 waiver application. Medicaid should help people when they are going through tough times. Health care is a human right and should not be taken away for failure to comply with this type of red tape and bureaucracy.
Virginians should not be penalized if their health condition prevents them from working, particularly in a manner that takes away health coverage and access to treatments and services. This proposed work requirement punishes people with poor health. Thank you very much for considering my thoughts on this waiver application.
Jan 7th 2019 2:10 pm Response: #396973 I am writing to you today regarding Virginia’s Medicaid waiver proposal, I oppose the aspects of this program that create new burdens on people who are already struggling. Monthly premiums of any amount would be too expensive for many families to pay regularly. These are already very poor families who struggle to afford basics like food and rent. If they qualify for Medicaid, they are unlikely to have the extra money to pay a premium. I am pleased to offer these comments and hope you will consider them.
