STATEHOUSE (April 5, 2022) – "Our overarching goal is to bring down the cost of health care, and deliver real savings for everyday Hoosiers and business owners," said House Speaker Todd Huston (R-Fishers). "While I'm still reviewing all of the responses from Indiana's insurers and nonprofit hospitals, I'm fully committed to continuing these discussions and meeting with stakeholders. Hoosiers are rightfully frustrated about rising costs and simply can't afford inaction on reducing health care expenses."
"Having affordable health care in Indiana is extremely important. I am in the process of reviewing the responses from Indiana's insurers and nonprofit hospitals and am encouraged by the engagement we are seeing," said Senate President Pro Tem Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville). "I look forward to continuing this discussion in the coming weeks as we process the information provided so we can identify solutions that will lower the cost of health care for all Hoosiers."
