Health Care & Wellness

When I meet with communities across our state, one of the top concerns I hear about is the rising cost of health care. That’s why I’m focused on improving access to affordable, quality health care for all New Mexicans. 

As a proud supporter of the Affordable Care Act, I know prevention and early intervention are cost effective and lead to healthier families.  Health insurance, prevention, and value for your health care dollars are at the heart of the health reform law.

As a result of the Affordable Care Act, young people can stay on their parents' health care until age 26, insurance companies are required to spend more of your premium dollars on care, and millions of Americans enjoy preventive services like screenings for cancer and diabetes without cost-sharing. And soon, insurance companies will be barred from refusing coverage to any American due to pre-existing conditions. The Affordable Care Act also makes Medicare stronger by adding new benefits, fighting fraud, cutting costs, and improving care for patients.
