Martin O'Malley's policies onHealthcare

Protect and build on the ACA to promote good health and prevent chronic disease

Chronic diseases account for 75 percent of all annual health care spending, and nearly half of all Americans have some form of chronic illness. O’Malley will protect the Prevention and Public Health Fund established by the Affordable Care Act, set rigorous goals, and bring the public and private sectors together to achieve them. This was the approach taken in Maryland, where a statewide network of public-private coalitions helped the state achieve the greatest improvement in metrics in the country according to America’s Health Rankings.
