It was introduced in the Senate by Senator Rand Paul and co-sponsored by Senator Ron Wyden, Senator Ron Johnson, and Senator Jeanne Shaheen.
The bill, which passed the Senate in May, aims to limit “over-medicalization”, or the use of medical services for individuals and families, and aims to help people pay for medical care.
