ENSURING ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE, QUALITY HEALTH CARE

David is working to make sure every Iowan has access to affordable and quality health care. As he travels across the Third District, he continues to hear about the rising costs of health care. It is clear the current system isn’t working and David is working to deliver solutions which will reduce cost, increase transparency, and lead to lower premiums.

David is protecting those with pre-existing conditions. He worked to make health care legislation better by including strong protections for those with pre-existing conditions. He has also asked Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar to include protections for those with pre-existing conditions in limited coverage insurance plans offered by the federal government.

David also introduced the Ensuring Lasting Smiles Act which makes sure insurance companies cover reconstructive surgeries for patients born with birth defects and congenital abnormalities. Often, insurance companies will deny paying for these surgeries because they consider them “cosmetic.” David knows there is nothing cosmetic about these surgeries and they are desperately needed for patients to live a more normal and healthy life.
