Montanans benefit from access to quality, affordable health care, and during this COVID-19 pandemic, the coverage offered by the Medicaid expansion is more vital than ever before. Medicaid expansion has been a lifeline for communities across Montana — by supporting thousands of jobs, expanding access to mental health and substance use disorder treatments, and helping rural hospitals stay afloat. A few weeks ago, Daines even admitted that “it’s very difficult to live in Montana” without “access to affordable health care” and that rural health care facilities are essential to the survival of the communities they support.
“In the midst of a public health and economic crisis, Steve Daines is still trying to make it harder for people to access affordable health care,” said MDP Executive Director Sandi Luckey. “This crisis highlights how critical health care access is for all Montanans. Now, more than ever, Montanans deserve a Senator who fights for increased access to health care, not one who tries to rip it away.”
