Support significant ACA improvement & keeping pre-existing medical condition protections. AARP recognized me for strengthening seniors’ health access with ‘Champion Legislative Leadership Award.’ I lead Prescription Drug Task Force & have bills to help end pharmaceutical price gouging that threatens patients. For the insured, my “End Surprise Billing Act” would stop unexpected medical bills from an out-of-network provider. For the uninsured -TX has more than any other state- Medicaid expansion essential. A public option & right to buy into Medicare would help more access a family doctor.
