DENVER, CO – Following reports that UnitedHeathcare will no longer serve as a program manager for Iowa’s Medicaid population, due in large part to Governor Reynolds’ decision to privatize the state’s Medicaid program, former Colorado governor and Democratic presidential candidate John Hickenlooper released the following statement.

“Nearly 500,000 Iowans are losing their health insurance provider because Governor Reynolds is treating healthcare as a privilege and not a right. In Colorado, we got to near universal health insurance coverage by expanding Medicaid and building a robust, innovative exchange. We should be building on the Affordable Care Act’s successes, not ripping healthcare away from working families.”
