POLICY: Arkansas House Passes Bill to Expand Health Freedom

By The Tenth Amendment Center

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (March 21, 2017) – Last week, the Arkansas House passed a bill that would help facilitate healthcare freedom and set the stage to nullify federally run healthcare in practice in the state. Rep. Justin Gonzales (R-Okolona) introduced House Bill 2240 (HB2240) on March 6. The legislation specifies that direct primary care agreements (sometimes called medical retainer agreements) do not constitute insurance, thereby freeing doctors and patients from the onerous requirements and regulations under the state insurance code. The House passed HB2240 by an 84-2 vote on March 17.
