    • Continuing the Healthy Indiana Plan to ensure access to health insurance for low-income Hoosiers until federal health care reform is fully implemented
    • Providing access and lower cost prescription drugs to all Hoosiers
    • Expanding home health care options for the elderly and persons with disabilities
    • Creating a statewide network of electronic medical records for easy access in times of emergencies
    • Promoting preventative, prenatal and child healthcare programs
    • Guaranteeing parity for mental illness in all public and private programs
    • Increasing medical services and offering incentives for medical professionals who practice in rural communities (SB 291
