I believe all Americans deserve access to quality and affordable health care. I am committed to ensuring the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is fully carried out and that constituents in the 33rd District receive needed care and services to lead productive and healthy lives. As part of the Congressional Black Caucus, I sit on the Health Care Taskforce that is focused on this important issue.
The Affordable Care Act was fully implemented by 2014 and has helped make every family eligible for health coverage. Among the benefits, the Act allows young people to stay on their parents’ insurance until the age of 26. Hundreds of thousands of young Texans are now covered as a result of the new law. The Affordable Care Act also makes Medicare prescription drug coverage more affordable. Since the law was enacted, Texans have saved over $2 million on prescription drugs. The law protects those with pre-existing conditions, covers preventive services with no deductible or co-pay, and provides many other critical protections and services.
