REDUCE COSTS & EXPAND ACCESS TO CARE
We are launching the effort to reform Oklahoma’s Certificate of Need (CON) laws to reduce artificially high costs and to increase the availability of certain types of care. These reforms will expand access and increase available alternatives for many Oklahomans, including our most vulnerable. Patients will ultimately benefit from more choices and reduced costs.
PROTECT OKLAHOMA FROM FEDERAL HEALTHCARE MANDATES
We will fight to defeat any efforts to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. Like many federal programs, President Obama’s healthcare law attempts to entice states to participate with temporary funding and then leaves them to pay for the high costs in the end. Oklahomans deserve quality care without intrusion from federal bureaucrats.
