As Attorney General, one of my biggest priorities will be making sure that the people of Illinois have access to healthcare that provides broad coverage and is affordable for everyone. As a cancer survivor, I know first-hand how crippling health care costs can be and how vital it is that all people have access to quality healthcare. I will make this issue a top priority of my administration.
Further, as Attorney General, I will proudly fight on behalf on patients’ interests. I will vigorously enforce the Hospital Uninsured Patient Discount Act, which prohibits hospitals from gouging uninsured patients, and the Fair Patient Billing Act, which requires hospitals to provide transparent and readable bills to patients, and which prevents hospitals from engaging in unfair and unethical collection practices.
