We’re three weeks away from the start of the Minnesota legislative session. State Senator Rich Draheim of Madison Lake lists giving people more freedom when it comes to health care as one of his priorities.

“The right to shop bill, which enables you to go outside your network, is one of my priorities,” said Draheim. “If you save money by going outside of your network, you get half the savings and your insurance companies receive the other half. You can use your half for co-pays, deductibles or premiums.”

The legislative session will begin on February 11th.
