Janet Mills on Health Care

 

 


Medicaid expansion helps everyone

Expanding MaineCare will help rural hospitals--which are some of the largest employers in their communities, often the only source of care, and often on the edge of financial collapse--because expansion will reduce the amount of uncompensated care they are asked to provide. We expect that this will reduce the cost of health insurance to small businesses, self-employed individuals and employees--whose insurance rates are essentially making up the difference for hospitals' uncompensated care.

Expanding MaineCare helps needy & helps hospitals

Expanded MaineCare will help up to 70,000 people who now lack affordable health insurance, so that they will never again have to face the choice between medical care and bankruptcy. Expanding MaineCare will also help our rural hospitals-- which are some of the largest employers in their communities, often the only source of care, and often on the edge of financial collapse--because expansion will reduce the amount of uncompensated care they are asked to provide.

Her office took on drug manufacturer Mylan on price gouging

Last year, generic drug manufacturer Mylan jumped the price of a 2-pack of EpiPens, from about $100 in 2007 to over $600 last year. Last winter, the Maine Atty General's Office and Atty general's in 19 other states sued Mylan and 6 other generic drug companies for conspiring to artificially inflate prices and reduce competition for an antibiotic drug and an oral diabetes drug. Just because a drug is cheap for them to make does not mean any savings will be passed on to consumers.
