Dr. Bucshon: House Republicans Have a Better Way

October 28, 2016
Press Release

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) –Earlier this week, the Obama Administration confirmed that millions of Americans will feel an unwanted October surprise: more ObamaCare rate shock. Health insurance premiums are set to increase by double-digits and many Americans will, in some cases, have access to only one insurer.

Eighth District Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. released the following statement on the announcement:

“The Obama administration confirmed this week that health insurance premiums will go up by double-digits.  It’s clear that the ‘Affordable Care Act’ is anything but affordable for millions of Americans – families trying to make ends meet, single parents working more than one job to get by, and young adults just starting their careers,” said Bucshon.

 “That’s why as a physician I’m working to repeal and replace the law with common-sense reforms that lower the cost of care. House Republicans are offering a better way on healthcare reform that implements patient-centered solutions to keep patients in charge of their healthcare decisions with plans that fit their budgets.”



House Republicans have introduced A Better Way for Healthcare.

Our plan gives patients more control so they can choose the plan that best meets their needs—not Washington’s mandates. We will:

  • Make it easier to take insurance from job to job. 
  • Expand health saving accounts. 
  • Give small businesses more leverage to negotiate better rates, and
  • Allow health insurance to be sold across state lines. 

All of this will help lower premiums. And instead of Washington at the center of health care, it will be the patient and her doctor.
