Background:

If enacted, this bill would increase costs and reduce access to health care by:

  • Increasing premiums for individual and employer-based coverage
  • Forcing medical providers around the state, especially rural providers, to close their doors
  • Ensuing longer wait times
  • Increasing travel to health care services

Instead of a “public option,” we believes that a “personal option” is the best way to ensure everyone has access to the high-quality health care they need, when they need it and at a price they can afford:

The personal option is a set of smart, sensible reforms designed to:

  • Lower the costs of care
  • Increase access
  • Promote price transparency
  • Place the patient at the center of health care.
