Episode #79: Matt Slonaker, Utah Health Policy Project

The Matts chat about the very timely issues of health care and health coverage in Utah, focusing on UHPP‘s valuable advocacy. Slonaker speaks to how, while Utah’s uninsured rates has improved in recent years, it is still higher than other states with similar populations and demographics. He compares how the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) has helped Utah families, with how the American Health Care Act (Trumpcare) is projected to reduce coverage. The two Matts also discuss how certain populations, such as refugees, the LGBT community, and those who speak English as a second language, face challenges accessing the health care system.
