Affordable Healthcare

Working Kentuckians pay staggering premiums for basic coverage, while deductibles rise. Drug prices continue to skyrocket making decisions to buy meds or go without a national shame. If elected, I will fight to improve access to affordable, quality health care, coverage of pre-existing conditions, improved mental health services, and lower drug costs. I will support laws that prevent surprise medical billing, expand the roles of nurse practitioners and physicians assistants, and mandate that hospitals post rates for procedures and services with penalties for ambiguous or unsupportable fees.
