My experience and interest in healthcare have given me the knowledge to understand that affordable healthcare is a necessity for all -- not a privilege. Every Idahoan should be given the ability to access quality, affordable healthcare. Let's work together towards a healthy future.
While serving on the Health and Welfare Committee in the Idaho Legislature, I have fought to increase efficiency within our healthcare system while reducing costs to individuals. I co-sponsored a bill that would allow the Idaho Prescription Drug program to serve more of the community while saving individuals substantial out of pocket expenses. This plan proposed an ingenious avenue for funding and would have eventually become a self-funded, self-sustaining program to ensure affordable prescription drug coverage.
