Cindy’s top priority in Congress is working to fix our broken health care system so that every Iowan has access to quality, affordable health care. Cindy will never let Washington go back to a time when Iowans with pre-existing conditions could be denied care.
In Congress, Cindy is committed to working with Democratic and Republican colleagues to put forward practical, bipartisan solutions to reduce costs, increase choice for consumers, lower the costs of prescription drugs, expand coverage across Iowa and streamline regulations for small businesses.
As a member of the Affordable and Accessible Health Care Task Force, Cindy committed to advancing practical, bipartisan policies to improve our healthcare system.

Iowa Congresswoman Cindy Axne is sponsoring legislation to address some of the unwelcome surprises on medical bills.
“The Update Act will require insurance companies to regularly update their directories to prevent patients from unknowingly receiving out-of-network care,” Axne says.
The bill makes it clear insurance companies are responsible for updating the lists that show which doctors, clinics and other health care providers are “in network” — and therefore covered by an insurance policy.

U.S. Rep. Cindy Axne, D-Iowa, told a modest-sized crowd Friday that she would “work with anyone” to serve her constituents in Iowa’s Third Congressional District.
She spoke to attendees at the Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce’s monthly luncheon at Holiday Inn & Suites.
WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee voted to advance Rep. Cindy Axne’s (D-IA-03) bipartisan legislation to provide relief to rural hospitals. The legislation, which Axne recently introduced with Rep. Adrian Smith (R-NE-03), will delay enforcement of burdensome regulations that limit the ability of Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) and rural hospitals to provide quality care.
As I’ve traveled throughout the Third District the last few months, I have heard from so many of you about the daily impact that rising prescription drugs costs is having on your lives.
