Lucy believes we must make healthcare easier for people to understand and make sure all Nevadans have access to affordable care. She refuses to go back to the time when Nevadans were denied coverage for pre-existing conditions or charging women more for healthcare.
Here in Nevada, Lucy voted to create the Silver State Health Insurance Exchange, and supports Governor Sandoval's recent decision to enter into the federal exchange in order to provide the level of service Nevadans deserve. Lucy believes that it is critical for the health of our state to make the new health care law work. Lucy also voted to expand Medicaid, ensuring that thousands more Nevadans now have access to healthcare.
As Lt. Governor, Lucy will continue to work with both parties to implement the Affordable Care Act.
