HEALTH


America’s problem isn’t the price of health insurance, it is the price of health care. Patient centered care means patients must have real choices. Government control of health insurance must end.  Specifically: (a) most Americans do not have cash-on-hand to pay out-of-pocket medical expenses; (b) employer's have too much control over health-insurance; and, (c) there is not enough competition among doctors and/or insurance companies. There are many free-market solutions available in the marketplace which will drive down the cost of health care. Health care will be more affordable if at minimum:
 
  • Basic medical needs (shots, prescriptions, check-ups, exams etc…) are met through a direct  “primary-care” subscription model  (for example see: http://neucare.net/pricing/);
  • Permit, pre-tax, Health Savings Accounts up to $25,000 per wage-earner or child annually (HSA are used for any medical procedures including insurance and are FDIC protected);
  • Develop a multi-state licensing system for insurance companies and doctors; thus, allowing competition across state lines and telemedicine;
  • Permit State and/or Federal governments to “buy out” patent protection (decreasing the allotted time drugs can go generic).
  • Permit any corporation, association, entity or groups of individuals to negotiate as a group;
  • Eliminate all “certificate of need” laws;
  • Patients must litigate against doctors only when there is real negligence or gross incompetence;
  • Patients with pre-existing conditions unable to find a charity hospital (approx. 180k people) may enroll in Medicaid;
  • Patient centered care means patients must have real choices; Medicaid must be transitioned to a voucher based system. End government managed health insurance.
  • U.S. veterans may receive care from any private or public hospital completely free of charge, eliminate the VA hospitals.
  • Medicare will remain; however, if free market solutions above are passed by Congress then Medicare will naturally phase out over time.
