Vice President of Government Affairs
Limiting the Growth of Medical Spending
Control the cost of health care and health insurance by limiting the growth of medical spending to the state’s 3.6 percent benchmark.
Stopping Expensive Health-Insurance Mandates
Impose a moratorium on new health care mandates and by repealing the so-called “fifty-plus” report.
Requiring Premium-Impact Statements
Control the cost of health insurance by requiring that, prior to the adoption, amendment, or repeal of any healthcare or health-insurance-related regulation, an agency must file with the Secretary of State a public notice of the proposed action and include a premium-impact statement. Mandate that any agency considering such adoption, amendment, or repeal hold a hearing to allow the public to present data, views, or arguments relative to the agency’s premium-impact statement and, prior to adopting the proposed regulation, the agency file an amended premium-impact statement with the Secretary of State.
