State Highlights: Failure To Meet Standards Might Lead To Closure Of New York Organ Collecting Agency; Texans Skipping Needed Health Care Due To Costs

The Star Tribune: DFL Candidates In Race For Governor Highlight Health Care Plans 

Minnesota DFLers running for governor are focusing on health care plans this week, seeking to help address rising medical and prescription drug costs as two of the three leading candidates get behind a single-payer approach. While Republicans have pushed for the dissolution of MNsure and a shift to health care policies where customers pick and choose what’s covered, DFL candidates Erin Murphy and U.S. Rep. Tim Walz have lined up behind single-payer health care. That would have the state take a greater role in providing more expansive coverage and decreasing drug costs by tapping into the state’s purchasing power. (Smith, 7/11)
