Why it’s Important to Fix GAMC

The Star Tribune reported on the failure of the legislature to override a veto of a bill which would have stopped the transfer of 32,000 people from General Assistance Medicare to MinnesotaCare. Since many of those covered by GAMC are veterans, or homeless, or people who suffer from mental illness, MinnesotaCare may not adequately address their needs. The legislation would have addressed needed reforms to GAMC and these have also been vetoed. A chart is linked here to view the issues. As reported in the article, House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher and House Minority Leader Kurt Zellers will continue to work on a better solution than the automatic transfer which is scheduled to take place on April 1.
