Health Care: Competition, Transparency, & Protecting Pre-Existing Conditions
First and foremost, Fred supports protecting individuals with pre-existing conditions as part of any health care plan.
Under Obamacare, Pennsylvanians saw their premiums increase by 120 percent. For far too many individuals and families, having a health insurance card does not mean they have access to quality, affordable health care.
In order to lower health care costs and increase accessibility, Fred supports increasing competition in the health insurance marketplace, which would include allowing insurers to sell across state lines, adding transparency so that consumers can make informed decisions, and allowing small businesses and individuals to pool together to purchase health insurance through association health plans.
