Health Care

Access to affordable health care is out of reach for too many people. Congressman Scalise believes that Obamacare has failed the American people and our economy. He is working with his colleagues in Congress to enact meaningful legislation that will provide patients’ rights to choose the coverage that best suits their needs.

Congressman Scalise believes health insurance should be portable between jobs, and Congress should provide incentives to make private insurance more affordable for those individuals who do not have access to employer-based insurance.

Congressman Scalise also supports Health Savings Accounts that allow individuals to save a limited amount of money for health expenses tax-free and Associated Health Plans that would allow small businesses to band together to purchase health insurance for their employees at a lower cost. Additionally, Congressman Scalise will fight to reduce frivolous lawsuits against physicians, which cause doctors to abandon certain practice areas and add to the rising cost of health care.

Congressman Scalise will continue to support legislation that will increase access and promote and expand individual choice in the health care market.
