Health and Human Services

Task Force Description

There is no sector of our economy where the hand of government is more evident than in health care. Half of what the nation spends on health care is public money, and this expansion of government involvement comes at the expense of patient control. True consumer choice leads to increased access at lower costs, while encouraging the innovation necessary to meet the growing needs of the nation’s diverse populations — the best health care system is consumer-driven, not government-driven.

The ALEC Health and Human Services Task Force has been a national leader in promoting free-market, pro-patient health care reforms at the state level. Since 2005, 38 states have enacted ALEC HHS model policy.

Meeting Information

The 2016 Annual Meeting will take place July 27-29, 2016 at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis, Indiana.
