On the Issues
Sanford cosponsored and voted for the Expanding Oversight of Opioid Prescribing and Payment Act of 2018 (H.R. 5723) which would have required the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) to evaluate and report on adverse incentives that lead to the over prescription of opioids and underutilization of non-opioid alternatives in the hospital setting.
Health Care Reform
Sanford also cosponsored the Obamacare Repeal Act (H.R. 175) and the Obamacare Replacement Act (H.R. 1072), both of which would have repealed the Affordable Care Act if they would have successfully passed.
