Health Care

For over three decades, I have represented individuals and families who were denied health care benefits by their insurance companies.  I have won cases of all sizes against tough odds and as Attorney General, I will use my experience to make sure all Coloradans are protected and receive these benefits to which they are entitled.

Health care in our country is a mess.  The Trump Administration will continue to try to repeal the Affordable Care Act at a time lawmakers need to work in a bipartisan fashion to improve the law.  With this uncertainty at the federal level, the cost of health care continues to rise, and insurers are threatening to leave the state entirely, meaning that many of our citizens will be uninsured.  Even when insurance should be available, the companies rely on exclusions and exceptions to avoid paying for necessary medical treatment.  Individuals are often helpless in fighting for the insurance benefits they deserve.  I will fight to ensure that everyone is treated fairly, that health insurance carriers follow the law, and that all Coloradans have access to affordable health insurance.
