Our health care decisions are personal and should remain between an individual and his or her doctor. Government involvement is both intrusive and costly. However, not everyone can afford health insurance. I sponsored and passed legislation providing a low-cost health insurance option for Colorado's uninsured and provided a means for seniors to receive assistance when their long term care policy is expended. I continue to support health and wellness legislation that can lower insurance premiums and provide for a better quality of life.
