Health Care

Jeanne believes everyone deserves access to affordable, quality health care.

She opposes repeal of the Affordable Care Act because she believes we cannot go back to the days when insurance companies could discriminate against women and people with pre-existing conditions, cap lifetime benefits, and terminate policies for people who got sick. Jeanne is working to improve the ACA by extending deadlines for sign up and cosponsoring legislation to reduce the number of policies cancelled by insurance companies. Jeanne led the effort to strengthen Medicare by reducing unnecessary hospitalizations and save an estimated $5,000 for each senior. Jeanne is cosponsoring bipartisan bills to require the government to negotiate for lower drug prices for Medicare and to prevent pharmaceutical companies from keeping cheaper generic drugs off the market.
