Affordable Healthcare

#1: Make healthcare more affordable and protect medical freedom

“Ensuring access to affordable, high-quality healthcare and putting patients and their doctors in control of personal healthcare decisions, are imperative. As Governor, I will work to enact reforms that deliver on those priorities.” - Jack Ciattarelli

  • End any rejection or limitation of health insurance coverage for pre-existing medical conditions
  • For anyone who changes health insurance plans, all specialists who treated a pre-existing condition will be considered “in-network”
  • Ensure health insurance plans cover all out-of-network expenses for emergent medical care
  • Support state-sponsored reinsurance programs/reimbursement systems that address catastrophic care claims in order to stabilize health insurance markets and make coverage more available and affordable
  • Encourage new free-market health systems that make care more accessible and affordable while guaranteeing patient choice
  • Where independent physician groups must negotiate with healthcare systems and/or insurance companies, a “baseball-style” arbitration process would be used to settle contract disputes
  • Greater availability and access to catastrophic health insurance plans for individuals who cannot afford traditional health insurance plans
  • In partnership with the federal government, better invest Medicaid dollars to encourage, empower and promote clinics in the community that provide access to high-quality and culturally competent healthcare to those who experience barriers to healthcare, such as the uninsured and working poor
  • Support research that studies why New Jersey has some of the highest rates of autism and breast cancer in the country
  • In support of medical freedom and vaccine choice, oppose mandatory vaccinations and so-called vaccine passports
  • Approve a new law - now being blocked by Gov. Murphy - that will improve access to healthcare, including mental health services, through telemedicine or telehealth in which patients, including lower-income workers, are guaranteed the choice of remote or in-person visits and to see a physician.
