Washington, D.C. — Hundreds of thousands of low-income Georgians are one step closer to gaining affordable health coverage.
The U.S. House of Representatives this morning passed an Ossoff-backed provision to deliver affordable health coverage for hundreds of thousands of Georgians who currently cannot afford it.
Sen. Ossoff, alongside Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock, last month successfully negotiated the inclusion of affordable health coverage for hundreds of thousands of low-income Georgians in the Build Back Better Act.
The provision will close the coverage gap by providing access to affordable health care for low-income Georgians and those nationwide whose states have refused to expand Medicaid.
Sens. Ossoff and Rev. Warnock continuously urged Senate leadership to include expanded health care coverage in the reconciliation package.
