Healthcare should be affordable, accessible, and high-quality. Government mandates, inadequate cost containment, high drug prices, and lack of price transparency are increasing premiums and deductibles, making insurance unaffordable. The average Idahoan might pay $12,000 for a simple shoulder surgery at one hospital and $22,000 for the same surgery at a different hospital.

My solution includes implementing “patient-centric alternatives” to lower these costs, while giving Idahoans more choice. These include Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), Direct Primary Care, Charity Care, Medi-Share, Medical Memberships, Association Health Plans, buying insurance across state lines, expanded use of disease management and wellness programs, integrate technology, and lessen administrative rules to help lower the costs of healthcare and healthcare insurance.
