Lowering Health Care Costs

Lunch with Sheldon

In the wealthiest country in the world, there is no reason why every single Rhode Islander shouldn’t be able to get high-quality health care at a price they can afford. I’m laser-focused on bringing down health care costs – especially the prices of prescription drugs – and improving the quality of care. I will continue to defend the Affordable Care Act from Republicans’ attempts to take us back to the days when people could be denied health insurance because of a pre-existing condition and insurers could limit the amount of care patients receive or charge women more for the same coverage. We need to defend women’s rights to make their own family planning decisions and build on the gains of the Affordable Care Act, whether through Medicare for All or the public health insurance option I originally sponsored almost a decade ago, to get every American the health care they need.
