Josh on: Health Care

Delegate Cole believes that healthcare is a human right and that Virginians should have access to quality health care they can afford. That’s why he supports removing work requirements tacked onto Medicaid expansion and capping the costs of life saving medications like insulin. Delegate Cole supports banning the practice of “balanced billing,” a practice where an individual receives care from a hospital or provider inside their insurance network but gets a surprise bill afterwards because the staff working they’re “out of network.” Delegate Cole believes that a person’s choice to get an abortion is between them and their medical provider. Every person should be able to make their own decisions about their health and their bodies — including abortion. No one’s most personal medical decisions should be controlled by politicians, neighbors, complete strangers, or anyone else and he will continue to work against any attacks on reproductive rights.
