Our Guiding Principles
Make Health Insurance Affordable & Better
Let us keep our employer-provided health insurance if we want to but also have a public health insurance option if we cannot afford private insurance. Assist small businesses with incentives that allow them to provide coverage to their employees.
No bans on receiving coverage if we have a pre-existing condition. Give us stronger consumer protections in private health insurance plans.
End health disparities
Improve health outcomes for all communities by promoting care that is appropriate to us! We need programs that promote prevention, address cultural and linguistic differences, place health providers in underserved communities, recruit more minority health professionals, and collect health data on Latinos.
Coverage for all children with U.S. citizenship, regardless of their parent’s immigration status and no exclusion of families with mixed immigration status.
Fairness in health care for the Americans of Puerto Rico by including them in the health insurance exchange, and ensuring equal Medicare benefits since they contribute equally like everyone else.
No five year ban on legal immigrants accessing federal health care services. Like citizens, they pay taxes and contribute to Medicare.
No burdensome verification requirements that prevent low income, elderly and minority American citizens and legal residents from accessing health care services they rightfully deserve.
