I believe that access to affordable, quality healthcare is vital for all Nevadans, and my stance on healthcare reform is centered around promoting a free-market, patient-centered approach. By introducing competition and choice into the healthcare system, we can drive down costs, increase efficiency, and provide better care for all. Here are some key changes I would like to see in the current system:

Encourage competition: By allowing insurers to sell policies across state lines, we can increase competition and provide consumers with more choices. This will help reduce premiums and give people the freedom to select a plan that best suits their individual needs and budget.

Expand Health Savings Accounts (HSAs): HSAs are tax-advantaged accounts that enable individuals to save for qualified medical expenses. By expanding the use of HSAs, we can empower people to make more informed healthcare decisions and promote a consumer-driven healthcare system.

Price transparency: I advocate for legislation requiring healthcare providers and insurers to disclose their prices for services, procedures, and prescription drugs. This increased transparency will enable consumers to make informed decisions about their healthcare and promote competition among providers.

Medical malpractice reform: By implementing reasonable caps on non-economic damages in medical malpractice lawsuits, we can reduce the cost of malpractice insurance for healthcare providers, lower overall healthcare costs, and encourage more medical professionals to practice in Nevada.

Promote preventive care and wellness: Encouraging preventive care and wellness programs can help reduce healthcare costs in the long run by catching health issues early on and promoting healthier lifestyles. By supporting incentives for employers to offer wellness programs and advocating for public health initiatives, we can create a healthier Nevada.

Preserve Medicare and Medicaid: It is crucial to protect the most vulnerable members of our society, including seniors and low-income individuals. I will work to preserve and improve Medicare and Medicaid by eliminating waste, fraud, and abuse, and ensuring that these vital programs remain sustainable for future generations.

By pursuing these conservative, market-driven reforms, I am confident that we can create a healthcare system that provides better access, affordability, and quality for all Nevadans.
