Senator Manchin believes that every American deserves access to quality, affordable healthcare. He has always said that our nation’s current system is in need of repair but we cannot simply repeal without a replacement. Senator Manchin believes that effective healthcare reform should expand access to coverage, while not inhibiting economic growth, and that the most effective healthcare legislation involves support from both political parties.

Senator Manchin is committed to working with colleagues from both parties to reduce the cost of prescription drugs for West Virginia families and decrease the cost of premiums without cutting the quality of benefits. Any changes to our current system should strive to make healthcare more affordable for West Virginia families ensuring more families have access to health insurance.
