Brian Kemp and the State of Georgia are kicking more children off Medicaid health coverage than almost any other state, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
On Brian Kemp’s watch, nearly 150,000 Georgia kids have lost their Medicaid coverage—the vast majority of whom are likely still eligible—as the state redetermines eligibility. According to HHS, the ten states that have not fully expanded Medicaid—including Georgia—have dropped more children from Medicaid than all other states combined.
“Hundreds of thousands of Georgia children have lost access to health care on Brian Kemp’s watch,” said Tolulope Kevin Olasanoye, DPG Executive Director. “Rather than expand Medicaid and ensure Georgians have the quality healthcare they need, Kemp’s mismanagement has resulted in more Georgia kids losing their health insurance. Governor Kemp’s choices have failed Georgia children—plain and simple.”
