Cory has been a leader in modernizing our health care system, lowering costs, and improving the quality of care for Coloradans. He understands any health care plan needs to cover pre-existing conditions and must be a part of any plan he will support. Cory’s bill to delay the Health Insurance Tax (HIT) has saved Coloradans money on their health insurance, and he also worked with Governor Polis and the Trump Administration to secure a waiver for Colorado to implement a reinsurance program that will reduce health care costs for hardworking Coloradans.

We must tackle the staggeringly high cost of prescription drugs by requiring drug companies to be more transparent about drug pricing, allowing Medicare to negotiate for lower prices, and ending the prohibition of the importation of safe drugs from Canada and Mexico. As a small businessman, I find it outrageous that Medicare is legally barred from negotiating the prices of prescription drugs, even though the VA and other countries around the world do exactly that.

The passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was a watershed moment in our nation’s health. For the first time, insurers could no longer deny coverage to individuals with pre-existing conditions or charge women more than men for the same care. Young people could stay on their parents’ plan until age 26. Lifetime caps were banned.  Mental health, prescription drugs, and preventative care became required benefits.

We must build on the success of the ACA by creating a public option that will lower health care costs and boost competition. Too many Americans remain uninsured or underinsured, all because insurance coverage is simply too expensive.

The constitutionally protected right to an abortion is one essential component of a comprehensive approach to reproductive health care. We must also guarantee access to affordable and safe contraception, coverage for routine cancer screenings and management of chronic conditions, and access to reliable information about reproductive health that is private, fact-based, and tailored to an individual’s needs.
