Kristee believes that every Nevadan should have access to quality, affordable health care. With the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, our health care system is further under strain and Nevadans need health care options now more than ever. Kristee wants to ensure that Nevada has the equipment, capacity, and health care staff needed to contain this virus.
With protections from big health insurance companies under threat, Kristee will fight to make sure that no Nevadan is ever denied coverage for a pre-existing condition. She will also stand up to big insurance companies to allow kids to stay on their parents insurance longer, and block insurance companies from putting lifetime caps on coverage. Kristee will also take on special interests, like big drug companies and health insurance companies, to get our health care costs under control.
In order to address the skyrocketing costs of prescription drugs, Kristee wants to require pharmaceutical companies to be more transparent about manufacturing costs. This will help Nevada to better address price gouging.
Kristee will go to work to bring down health care costs while ensuring that union members and people who have health insurance they like are able to stay on their current plans.
