Kentucky Governor Outlines Plan to Provide Health Care Coverage to ‘100 Percent’ of Black Residents

by BENJAMIN FEARNOW, Newsweek  |  Published on June 9, 2020

Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear announced his administration will begin working to end health care inequalities in black communities, with the aim of providing coverage to “100 percent” of the state’s African-American residents.

The Democratic Kentucky governor vowed to begin working toward tangible changes in the state’s health care system, focusing on a three-pronged approach to improving health care for “everybody.” Beshear said coverage, access and quality are the main components of his push to reduce inequality along racial and socio-economic lines. Echoing the promises of many progressive federal lawmakers, Beshear said Monday during his daily coronavirus press conference he believes “health care is a basic human right.”

The Kentucky governor reiterated that the inequality in the state’s health care system were exposed by the coronavirus pandemic, which killed black Americans at a rate much higher than white Americans nationwide.
