Governor Carney’s Statement on the Senate GOP Healthcare Bill

Delaware Health and Social Services | Governor John Carney | News | Office of the Governor | Date Posted: Tuesday, June 27, 2017



DOVER, Del. Governor John Carney released on Tuesday the following statement on the U.S. Senate Republicans’ healthcare plan:

“The Senate Republican healthcare bill would lead to thousands of Delawareans losing their health insurance and cause premiums to rise dramatically for older Delawareans. It would force the state’s Medicaid program to reduce or eliminate coverage for vulnerable populations — like those suffering from addiction. Delawareans who can no longer afford health insurance under the Senate bill will delay needed care, and wind up in emergency rooms. This bill would simply shift healthcare costs onto the most vulnerable among us, and onto state budgets. That is unacceptable.”
