Mark Hurt on Health Care

 

 


Market forces better than ObamaCare

While favoring elements of The Affordable Care Act, Hurt supports repealing the ObamaCare legislation. Hurt would like individual policies similar to catastrophic coverage under health savings accounts that allow Americans to buy riders to have added coverage for important areas presently required through state mandates. Hurt would allow insurance companies serving businesses operating across state lines with larger purchasing groups and greater negotiating power.

Funding to alleviate shortage of mental health professionals

There are no Democrats, Independents or Republicans when it comes to mental health reform. The 20-year tax-free bonds and building of the new neuro diagnostic center at the Community East campus in central Indiana was much needed.

Federally, Hurt is committed to working with the Indiana delegation to expand loan repayment and loan forgiveness for doctors and counselors willing to serve tours of duty in the field of mental health to help alleviate the acute shortage of mental health professionals serving those with mental illness in local communities.

While favoring elements of The Affordable Care Act, such as the elimination of limits for coverage for individuals with cancer, allowing for guaranteed renewability, the elimination of pre-existing conditions, and coverage for children up to age 26 on parental health care plans, Hurt supports repealing the ObamaCare legislation.

Support cross-state competition, not ObamaCare bureaucracy

In the area of health reform, Hurt supports expansion of competition as a way to reduce the escalating cost of health insurance premiums and co-pays. Hurt supports repealing the ObamaCare legislation. Hurt noted the billions spent on bureaucracy and taxes have hit small business especially hard. The small business markets have seen up to 70% increases in premiums.

Hurt would like individual policies similar to catastrophic coverage under health savings accounts that allow Americans to buy riders to have added coverage for important areas such as maternity care, chiropractic coverage and many of the other items presently required through state mandates. Hurt would encourage more insurance companies to enter the markets and allowing businesses to build on business commonality, with insurance companies serving businesses operating across state lines with larger purchasing groups and greater negotiating power.
