Indiana Health Care Compact (HB1269) has already passed in the House. This important legislation which allows Hoosiers better choices and a stronger voice in their health care options is currently stalled in the Senate Appropriations Committee.
Thursday morning, Feb. 23rd, we have a VERY IMPORTANT committee vote on self-governance in Indiana!
Members of the Appropriations Committee need to know that Hoosiers want self-governance in health care options, not layers of bureaucratic control. This legislation needs to move out of committee and be allowed a vote in the Senate.
Please take a moment to contact as many members of the committee as possible, making sure to place something similar to , “Vote YES on Indiana Health Care Compact as a subject line.

When you call or email, here are just a few things you need to make sure you tell them:
1. Hoosiers need relief from the crushing financial and regulatory burdens of the Affordable Care Act. HB1269: The Health Care Compact provides this relief.
2. The Indiana state legislature is better equipped to administer health care programs than the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
3. HB 1269 does NOTHING to any existing program, to include Medicare and Medicaid. In fact, seniors are helped by changing the long term trajectory of those programs.
The Indiana Health Care Compact would give the power to make choices back to Indiana residents.
While this You Tube clip was created by the Ohio State Health Care Compact much of the information in the short clip pertains to Indiana as well.
