What specific reforms, if any, would you propose in state health care policy to address the cost of and access to health care for all Texans?

Mike Collier

Lieutenant Governor


It’s time we expand Medicaid. It’s a good deal for Texas. We also need a Patient Financial Bill of Rights, including (1) absolute protection for Texans with pre-existing conditions, (2) protection against in-network vs.out-of-network surprise billings, (3) bills that are transparent and in plain English, and (4) mandatory disclosure if lower cost options (drugs and procedures) are available. And we must invest in women’s health, mental health, and children’s health, as we once did!
