“I’ll work to lower health care costs and expand services”
Negotiate Lower Health Care Costs
Steve Lathrop will use the millions of dollars of purchasing power of the State of Nebraska to negotiate lower health care costs and higher quality health care.
Expand Access to Health Care for Working Families
Steve Lathrop supports affordable and accessible health care for all Nebraskans, especially senior citizens, who currently can’t afford care.
Expand Health Insurance Options
Nebraska ranks 30th in the percentage of state residents with health insurance. Steve will expand options for low-cost, high‑value plans.
Advocate for Lower Prescription Costs
Steve will be a strong voice advocating for the right of Nebraskans to purchase prescribed medications from Canada, to allow Medicare to negotiate lower drug costs, and to end prescription advertising – which increases costs.
Fight Opioid Addiction
Nebraska can do more to curb opioid addiction. Steve will work with both sides to continue efforts to fight addiction, and he’ll help law enforcement round up those who are illegally selling these drugs.
