More Accessible, Affordable Health Care

Alaskans need more accessible, more affordable health care. But, Alaskans don’t need individual mandates forcing Alaskans to buy national health insurance. That’s why Governor Parnell filed to join a lawsuit with 19 other states against the unconstitutional legislation.

In Alaska, we’re committed to improving access to health care through innovative, competitive means—not mandates. We support incentivizing more health care professionals to live and work in Alaska and increasing the number of seats available for students interested in the University of Alaska’s nursing program. We also support insurance pooling across state lines to reduce costs for small businesses and incentivizing the widespread use of technology, like electronic medical records and the E-ICU concept.
