Earl Ray Tomblin on Health Care


All should have access at an affordable price

Gov. Tomblin's request to expand health care coverage of uninsured children in West Virginia up to 300 percent of the federal poverty level was approved.

Having access to affordable health care should not be reserved for a few. We all get sick and we all must rely on doctors and nurses to heal us. I am pleased to know more of our youngest citizens will now be able to get the care they need and deserve and their families can obtain that care at an affordable price.

WV Connect: access for 10,000 working uninsured & spouses

Regardless of the debate over the federal health care bill, we need to continue to improve our health care system. One focal point of my administration will be to find ways to foster the creation of health insurance for our working uninsured.

WV Connect provides access to health care for 10,000 working, uninsured West Virginians and their spouses. This pilot program will reduce emergency room visits and avoidable hospitalizations, resulting in a healthier workforce.
