As a practicing doctor of internal medicine and lung diseases for nearly two decades, I’ve seen my patients’ struggles – ranging from insurance coverage issues, prescription drug issues, in- and out-of-network issues, follow-up issues, and support beyond medical care. I am proud to say that I’ve never asked for reimbursement from any patient who didn’t have insurance.
I would be the first doctor to be California’s Insurance Commissioner.
It’s because of this firsthand experience, that prepared me to stand up for Californians against predatory insurance companies.
That’s why I’ve promised never to take a dime of money from insurance companies or Pharmaceuticals. If you agree that we need an Insurance Commissioner to fight for patients and consumers, join our team!
I support Medicare for All because I think healthcare is a right — not a privilege for the few.
As Insurance Commissioner, I’ll protect women’s health and reproductive rights against GOP attacks, ensure that Californians have improved access to affordable mental healthcare, and make sure all children can get medical treatment regardless of immigration status.
I look forward to seeing you at convention. In the meantime if you have any questions about my candidacy, please visit asif2018.com.
