Healthcare

Accessible and Affordable Options for All Virginians

 

"Many families across our community struggle to afford even the most basic healthcare coverage. I'm committed to fighting for a system that provides affordable coverage to every Virginian, because no one should have to choose between buying food or paying doctor's bills."

 

In the General Assembly, Alfonso successfully:

  • Fought for the expansion of Medicaid to over 500,000 new Virginians—including over 45,000 residents of Arlington & Fairfax counties—and put an end to the practice of surprise billing.
  • Passed legislation to grant Medicaid coverage to immigrant mothers and children.
  • Worked across the aisle to preserve funding for critically important free health clinics across the Commonwealth, including the Arlington Free Clinic.
  • Defeated Republican legislation that would limit women's reproductive choice.

 

As Delegate, Alfonso will support legislation that will: 

  • Protect a woman’s right to make her own healthcare decisions.
  • Expand healthcare access and affordability to low income Virginians and immigrants.
  • Fight to ensure that no Virginian should live under the fear of financial ruin, should they or a loved one get injured or become ill.
