Healthcare Reform

Home > Issues

As a Democratic candidate for the Senate representing Florida, I am deeply committed to ensuring that seniors and all residents have access to high-quality, affordable healthcare. I will advocate for the expansion of Medicare to cover more services, including dental, vision, and hearing care, which are crucial for seniors’ well-being. Additionally, I support lowering the Medicare eligibility age and allowing a Medicare buy-in option for those who are not yet eligible, providing a public option that ensures affordable coverage for everyone. I will work to lower prescription drug prices by enabling Medicare to negotiate directly with pharmaceutical companies, ensuring that life-saving medications are accessible to all who need them.

Beyond Medicare expansion, I will push for comprehensive healthcare reform that includes strengthening the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to provide greater protections and coverage for all Floridians. This includes expanding Medicaid in Florida, ensuring that low-income individuals and families have access to necessary healthcare services. I will support policies that address healthcare disparities, improve mental health services, and ensure rural and underserved communities receive adequate healthcare resources. By focusing on preventive care, reducing costs, and improving access, we can create a more equitable and efficient healthcare system that protects seniors and all residents, ensuring a healthier Florida for generations to come.
