Healthy bodies, healthy minds, healthy communities.
In a country that boasts the best healthcare in the world, too many Oklahomans don’t have the resources to access quality, affordable coverage. With healthcare costs soaring, we can do more to protect those who get sick or hurt and, through no fault of their own, can’t access care.
Through our great system of community health clinics and hospitals, Oklahoma’s healthcare providers take care of people regardless of their ability to pay. But for those who are under-insured or uninsured, a simple illness or accident can become quite costly. Where we can regulate unnecessarily high healthcare costs to protect consumers, we should. Where we can fund health clinics and hospitals in preventative care, we should.
Doing these things ensures that more Oklahomans can access quality healthcare, and that taxpayers aren’t overburdened by the cost of uncompensated care for those who aren’t covered.
