Health

Congresswoman Van Duyne knows firsthand the real impacts our current broken healthcare system can have on families. The main concern I hear from Texans is the price of coverage is only going up, families have less access to options, and a decrease in quality. It is for those reasons why I oppose the Affordable Care Act.

Congress needs to be focused on expanding health insurance options to lower costs, have more personalized coverage and put patients in direct relationships with physicians. We must ensure we protect people with pre-existing conditions and continue to allow kids to stay on their parent’s health insurance until they are 26.

In order to lower costs and keep people away from the crushing financial burden of the individual market we must open the marketplace and increase competition. A one size fits all approach is not the right way to give the American people healthcare options. Rest assured, I will keep your thoughts in mind as legislation pertaining to healthcare comes before the House of Representatives.

Healthy Futures Task Force

Rep. Van Duyne was selected by Leader McCarthy for the Healthy Future Task Force, led by Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee Republican Leader Brett Guthrie (KY-02) and Ways and Means Health Subcommittee Republican Leader Devin Nunes (CA-22). The Task Force will build on Republican health policy successes and craft a patient-focused agenda for the future.
