Sanford co-sponsored a bill with Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul in 2017 that would have repealed the Affordable Care Act and replaced it with private health care options. In an op-ed for the Post and Courier, Sanford wrote that the bill represented "an earnest, if rushed, attempt to protect people with pre-existing conditions while at the same time helping people who have seen dramatic increases in their insurance costs."

The South Carolina politician still stands by the plan, which he writes would give people "the health insurance they [need], rather than the health insurance the government prescribed."
