The Alaska Health Freedom Act codifies as state policy that every person in the state of Alaska is and shall continue to be free from government compulsion in the selection of health insurance options, and that such liberty is protected by the Constitutions of the United States and the State of Alaska. The bill removes the authority of any state official or employee from enforcing any penalty which violates the policy. HB 1 affirms the right of all Alaskans to choose their own "mode of securing health care services."
