Health Care

Providing Affordable Health Care for All

Healthcare should not be a privilege. We must ensure quality, affordable healthcare for every American. With the rising costs of healthcare and prescription drugs, many American families are one accident or illness away from falling into bankruptcy. No American family should suffer because they cannot afford health care. Phil Ehr supports a public option to give all Americans an opportunity for coverage, while also protecting private options for those that choose.

The Affordable Care Act ensured coverage for over 20 million Americans without health insurance, while also ensuring protections for pre-existing conditions and young people. Republican leaders have worked to repeal the ACA, which would strip healthcare from roughly 22 million Americans. We have to find bipartisan solutions to address rising premiums and prescription medications without leaving millions of Americans without coverage.

As a Congressman, Phil would protect and strengthen the Affordable Care Act while also working to expand coverage to every American.

The Opioid epidemic takes over 130 American lives every single day. Access to quality, affordable health care is key to ensuring treatment for those impacted by the opioid crisis. We must hold big pharmaceutical companies responsible for their role in this epidemic, and make effective prevention and treatment available to all.

Phil Ehr supports:

  • Protecting and strengthening the Affordable Care Act and Medicare
  • A public option to lower premiums and provide coverage to low income Americans
  • Lowering prescription drug costs through negotiation
  • Holding big pharmaceutical companies accountable
  • Improving supply and quality of generic medications
