Fighting Runaway Health Insurance Costs

Individual health insurance costs are out of control in Alaska.  They have skyrocketed 40% each of the last two years.  I was proud to help pass a bill that will lower the rate increases, and I voted for an amendment to improve your ability to know about proposed rate increases and have a meaningful ability to comment to the Division of Insurance before these rates are approved.  More work needs to be done, and I introduced legislation to reform Alaska’s insurance rate review process.  I will continue to work to push this bill into law and fight for lower health insurance rates.
