These days, there is electricity in the air surrounding health policy and reform. Gov. Walker has expanded Medicaid, offering more Alaskans than ever a chance to receive quality healthcare. There is even discussion about expanding Medicaid to increase its effectiveness, making it one of the most dynamic states in the country in terms of health policy.
In prior years, some Alaskan residents had fear of repercussion for promoting a discussion about health policy and what’s best for Alaska’s unique communities. But it appears that has changed in recent years. Now more than ever, there is an open dialogue about what health policies are best for Alaska and her citizens.
The residents of Alaska deserve most of the credit for fostering such an open dialogue about health policy. Health care is a polarizing topic, and it’s important to remain as informed as possible about the complex issues surrounding it; people can disagree on policy, but it’s important to have a reason why. However, the recent level of public discourse in Alaska on Medicaid, general health care and other policy issues has been impressive.
