All Marylanders deserve equal and affordable access to health care. That is why Mia believes in Medicare for All, a policy that would prevent costly medical bills, eliminate exclusions for pre-existing conditions, and provide equal coverage to all Marylanders.
The goal is to provide high quality and affordable health care to everyone.
No more out of network costs, no more premiums or copays. Coverage for vision, hearing, dental, mental health, and long term care. Focus on lowering the price of prescription drugs.
Tax the corporations and the wealthy. Shift employers from paying private insurance companies to paying Medicare.
Maryland has an opioid crisis, and it needs to be addressed with real solutions. That's why Mia supports the The CARE Act, which is a comprehensive plan to end the opioid crisis by providing the resources needed to begin treating this epidemic like the public health crisis.
Resources would be used to support the whole continuum of care, from early intervention for those at risk for addiction, to harm reduction for those struggling with addiction, to long-term support services for those in recovery.
Along with addiction treatment, the CARE Act would ensure access to mental health services and help provide critical wraparound services like housing support and medical transportation for those who need them.
It is Mia's goal to make these acts laws and to bring the needed help to our communities.
Amid a global pandemic, Rep. Harris voted against the HEROES Act, a resolution that aims to establish requirements for COVID-19 testing and contact tracing, expand paid sick days and medical leave, and provide premium pay to essential workers.
Rep. Harris voted against the Protecting Americans with Preexisting Conditions Act of 2019, an act which requires states to comply with, and not opt out of, the ACA's mandate that insurance companies cover people with pre-existing conditions.
Medicare for All is the best way to give everyone in Maryland a guarantee of high-quality health care. Mia will ensure that the health care system works for all Marylanders, and that nobody goes bankrupt because of a medical bill. Mia believes that pre-existing conditions should be covered by insurance companies- equality in medical care for all with no exclusions.
