An estimated 30,000 residents of Hamilton County have no health insurance at all, and many more have health insurance but can’t afford high premiums and co-payments.
Healthcare is a human right, and Mike will fight to ensure all Hoosiers get the care they need. Mike will fight any attempts to cap or block critical funding for the Healthy Indiana Plan or HIP 2.0. He will fight any move to privatize or “voucherize” Medicare.
