Healthcare

I have been involved in the management of medical practices in Alaska for 22 years. This experience has allowed me a unique insight into the realities of healthcare and the challenge of providing medical care in both urban and rural Alaska. Creating real-world, humane solutions to those problems will be a major focus of my tenure as representative. My experience in managing healthcare practices and understanding the dynamics that affect the relationships between hospitals, networks, providers and patients, allows me a unique insight while working toward positive, productive changes.

The Affordable Care Act insurance marketplace is now in effect.  I am encouraged to see premium costs going down in states that chose to implement their own insurance exchanges. I am hopeful Alaskans will be able to receive the same benefits. If not, the Affordable Care Act needs to be changed.

It is difficult to find a doctor in Alaska who accepts new Medicare patients. For the past few decades, I have worked extensively with fee schedules and have seen first-hand how low Medicare reimbursement has caused many physicians to stop accepting new Medicare patients. We need a solution that adequately compensates providers so that all Alaskans get the quality healthcare they need.    I am happy to see that pre-existing conditions will no longer be a barrier to those in need. I am heartened that many of these hard-working Alaskans, who were unable to obtain adequate coverage under the old system, will now, finally, have the security of knowing that their basic needs are being met. Only when basic human needs are met can we expect to prosper as a community and a state.
