Health Care:

Every Arkansans should be covered and every child should be covered.

The cost and access to healthcare is a critical issue for Arkansans. Far too many Arkansans live in hospital deserts, and as a mother of two, Natalie James understands the importance of having immediate access to healthcare services. Healthcare must be a right for all and not a privilege for some. Every Arkansan should be covered, and every child should be covered. 

 

Expanding access to healthcare is something Natalie believes we can do and must. While many Americans have secure and safe access to healthcare opportunities currently, that is not a reality for nearly 250,000 Arkansans and far too many Americans. 

 

Sen. John Boozman voted time and time again to strip countless Americans from their right to healthcare without even a replacement in sight. Natalie believes we can make much-needed improvements to the Affordable Care Act while preserving it and protecting those with pre-existing conditions. Natalie also believes Congress must pass the Save Rural Hospitals ACT to provide much-needed assistance to rural and urban hospitals.

 

As your Senator, she will:

 

  • Defend Protections for those with pre-existing conditions.

  • Support safe access to reproductive services and a woman's right to choose what happens to HER BODY. 

  • Support legislation to lower the cost of prescription drugs and measures to allow Medicaid to negotiate with pharmaceutical companies. 

  • Defend and improve the Affordable Care Act.

  • Hold Big Pharma accountable for its role in the opioid epidemic.
