How state legislatures affect our access to healthcare
Share |
State legislatures can also take actions that affect our access to healthcare, such as: 

• Establish optional mandated benefits for statewide health insurance plans, such as routine cholesterol and blood pressure screenings
• Provide assistance to women with no health insurance
• Influence Medicaid eligibility and its list of approved prescription medicines
• Sponsor statewide public education programs
• Enact patients bill of rights, including full disclosure of benefits and increased access to specialist physicians
