Wants to Repeal Obamacare: No
Her Plan: Clinton aims to defend the Affordable Care Act, but wants to slow the growth of out-of-pocket costs. She plans to give relief to people who are buying insurance on the healthcare exchanges, by providing a tax credit of up to $5,000 per family to offset a portion of their out-of-pocket and premium costs above 5% of their income.
Similar to President Obama, the former first lady, senator, and secretary of state supports the expansion of Medicaid.
Clinton intends to encourage rural access to healthcare by exploring ways to get health care providers become eligible for telehealth reimbursement under Medicare and other programs, including federally qualified health centers and rural health clinics. She also intends to target rising prescription drug prices.
As she articulated previously, Clinton wants to strive for a public option that would create a government-run healthcare insurance agency that would compete with private insurers.
