      • Create "National Single-Payer Healthcare SYSTEM"; Relieving businesses of expensive benefits

        As it would be part of the national infrastructure, along with education, schools, mail, roads, sewers, garbage collection, water supply, fire & police protection, libraries, CDC, etc, and DON'T forget the military & government created the INTERNET. It would make American business MORE competitive w/o the heavy burden of healthcare benefits. They could provide less expensive "supplemental" is so desired.

        • Repeal the Insurance Industry Anti-Trust Exemption

          The healthcare reform act missed a great opportunity to repeal the obscure McCarron-Ferguson act which exempts the insurance industry (not just healthcare) from the Sherman and Clayton anti-trust acts and the FTC. Imagine what if insurance companies were limited in their ability to fix prices and collude to limit competition, and engage in unfair business practices. This one thing could do more to reduce healthcare costs and reduce the deficit more than many other things.

          • Make hospitals like the Mayo Clinic responsible for treating their patients with respect and decency

            You're going to the Mayo Clinic, and touting it as a model of good health care. Wrong. I went there 2-1/2 years ago and was treated like a piece of meat. I was sick, but they made me run all over the complex, with no guidance as to how to get from clinic to clinic: no maps, no clear directions, just vague, inaccurate verbal instructions that had me running all over the complex, making me sicker, to the point where I couldn't talk clearly or think clearly. Literally. It was a terrible experience. They obviously have no consideration for the…

            • Make all health care services not-for-profit

              All health care services (hospitals, doctors, clinics, etc) should be not-for-profit entities. This would help reduce the cost of medical care in this country.

              • Break - up the Doctor / Drug Co. Relationship

                Break - up the Doctor/ Drug Co. Relationship. Modern USA Healthcare KILLS 1/4 MILLION CITIZENS EACH YEAR. From properly prescribed medications to botched/unnecessary surgery. Change status quo from profiting in temporary symptom care to promoting a healthy living agenda. Google Dr. Joe Mercola, He has 4th largest healthcare related website. He is the doctor - your doctor doesn't want you to know about. Why should we be mandated to join bullsh't system. My wife and I pay large money for healthcare and todays physicians can't/won't diagnose problem, only prescribe pills for symptoms which causes more/different issues. FACT - Modern USA…

                • Take Govt Supplied Health Care from all Legislators.

                  The American Health Care system is and atrocity engineered by special interests. Those who cannot obtain large scale group coverage are being financially destroyed by exorbitant premiums for woefully in adequate coverage. People are going broke and dying needlessly. It is America’s shame.

                  Both parties are totally corrupt in regards to the issue and as such we need a wedge issue to break through. That issue is to force all Congressmen, Senators and the President to forgo their government sponsored heath insurance and to buy it in the open markets.

                  Let’s call it the Health Care Equality Act.

                  By definition,…

                  • Improve health system to stimulate the economy.

                    The state gives out tax breaks to companies and tax credits to individuals to try and stimulate the economy. Well, why not instead take that money and provide health care cost free for everyone up until a maximum value of around $5000? Most healthy young people won't need even this much care. After the maximum government benefit amount is reached the equivalent of a high deductible insurance plan would kick in. Most people would still be required to buy this part but it should be more affordable since the insurance companies will no longer deal with managing care. There would…

                    • Solving insurance companies denial of medical care

                      This is not an original idea of mine like “Solving unemployment” or Solving social funding, but it was very creative and I think would be effective.

                      Medical insurance carriers should be required to carry substantial life insurance policies in tandem. That way if they deny coverage and the person dies, it costs them a lot more than the denied service.

                      • Medicare for All Who Want It: Keep private insurance if you want.

                        Stop forcing people to buy private insurance. Some people actually want government sponsored health care and are willing to pay for it. Just like Medicare, there is an enrollment window. Enrollment outside of an eligibility window results in higher premiums.

                          • The price a provider can charge for each medical item or service is capped by an independent council

                            The provider can charge less if they want but not more than the cap price. An example would be say no more than $150 for a regular office visit or $250 for a specialist. A price cap would be in place for each medicine as well as every medical device. An appeals process would be available to providers who want to raise one of the limits, and all of caps would undergo regular reviews maybe every few years. This is something like what Japan does. It is the best and most direct way to control prices which are spiraling out…
