CALIFORNIA HEALTH CARE
Improving Access, Increasing Choices
To fix California health care, we need to start fresh so that patients and their doctors, not Washington, make health care decisions. I support common-sense health care reforms that will lower costs, ensure quality care that Americans deserve, and hold the Healthcare industry accountable. As it stands, California health care options are negatively affecting the physician-patient relationship, reducing competition, and damaging health care quality and choice.
Currently, the American people are losing their health care plans and seeing their costs increase dramatically. I oppose government-run health care and seek to protect the liberty of American patients.
As Californians, we pride ourselves on access and choices. Being able to choose the practitioner and physician you want, is key in giving you the freedom to make the best decisions for your health care.
HEALTH INSURANCE CALIFORNIA
Better Health Care Options Equals Better Health Care Outcomes
For insurance needs, I believe competition brings out the best in companies. In theory, everyone should be able to afford the insurance plan that fits their lifestyle, if they so choose. Being able to purchase insurance across State lines will greatly reduce the cost and increase the access.
I believe that preserving medical choice and freedom is essential to maintaining high standards of California health care. The Affordable Care Act has driven up prices for all consumers. Insurance premiums have dramatically increased, and deductibles have risen nearly eight times faster than wages in the last ten years. We need to get a handle on the skyrocketing prices of drugs and ensure that life-saving medications are not inaccessible.
HEALTH CARE PRIVACY IN CALIFORNIA
Your Medical Records Will Never Be Public
Your health care is private and should remain between you and your healthcare provider. The government should never have access to your medical records unless you approve of it.
The traditional patient-physician relationship based on mutual trust, informed consent, and confidentiality must be restored.
