Matt Bevin on Health Care
Work/school requirements for Medicaid
Bevin said his administration's 1115 Medicaid waiver will empower Kentuckians to improve their own health outcomes. The waiver requires able-bodied adults with no dependents to work, go to school, or volunteer 20 hours a week.
The waiver also enables the state to allocate Medicaid dollars for behavioral health needs.

Disband KYNECT immediately; transition to federal system
Health care reform in Kentucky begins with freezing and beginning to disband KYNECT immediately and assisting as needed in transitioning our citizens quickly from a state run exchange
to the federally run healthcare exchange because Kentucky cannot financially afford to do otherwise.

Defund ObamaCare immediately, then repeal ObamaCare
ObamaCare isn't even fully implemented, and it is already a disaster. When fully implemented, it will raise the cost of healthcare, destroy jobs, and allow government to play an even larger role in our most personal decisions. We need to defund
ObamaCare immediately and repeal ObamaCare as quickly as legislatively possible. Washington politicians say they oppose ObamaCare, but they continue to vote for spending bills that fund it. This has to stop.
Matt will not vote for any spending bills that fund ObamaCare. None.
Matt believes we need to institute free-market reforms that will actually lower the cost of healthcare, increase choice, and allow patients to make health care decisions with their
doctors--not government bureaucrats. We should increase competition by allowing people to buy health insurance across state lines, implement commonsense tort reform, and expand health savings accounts.
