A Lake Crystal Republican has introduced a bill meant to help people across the state save money on healthcare.

Republican State Representative Jeremy Munson of Lake Crystal.

State Representative Jeremy Munson said it’s called the “Right to Shop Act,” and explained, “This bill allows you to shop outside of your health insurance network and requires full price transparency of services in healthcare.”

Munson added that, “it creates a shared incentive program where the insurance companies are required to share in the savings with you, the patient, when you find care that is cheaper than the median price in your area.”

He said the potential cost savings would not just positively impact individual customers but also everyone in that particular health insurance pool.
