Nan Whaley on Health Care

 

 


Build infrastructure to distribute millions of vaccines

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, who announced that she would not be running for a third term as mayor this year, [discussed] the prospect of running for Ohio governor in 2022. "I am a progressive Democrat and I work with Republicans all the time and I know it can be done,'' Whaley said. "But I honestly think [DeWine] is trapped by the extremist elements of his party,'' Whaley said, [especially the NRA].

In our talk, Whaley raised another issue where she has a bone to pick with the incumbent governor--the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines throughout the state. "We are very concerned that that the infrastructure is not there to deal with getting vaccines to millions of people in Ohio,'' Whaley said. "The governor and the state are still in a scarcity mind set. And it's appropriate that we be careful about allocating scarce resources. But, by March or April, there will be plenty coming in. What happens when we have a ton of vaccines coming in?"

Medicaid crucial to helping addicts; don't throw people off

Medicaid covers both inpatient and outpatient drug rehabilitation. It also pays for a significant share of states' buprenorphine medication-assisted treatment. In my Montgomery County, where 773 treatment beds aren't nearly enough to respond to our ever-growing need, it's critical that we expand treatment options, not make them out-of-reach by throwing people off their health insurance. The same is true for states and counties across the country.
