Everyone has the right to quality medical coverage regardless of their current or past health conditions.
- America’s healthcare system should empower individuals and families instead of Washington bureaucrats.
- We need common-sense solutions that harness the power of the free market.
- The marketplace for healthcare should be competitive in order to drive down costs.
- Allowing patients to choose the coverage that best suits them will help alleviate costs and will give providers certainty.
- We need to encourage the portability of health insurance. Allowing employees to own their health care plan and take it with them between jobs.
- We must make insurance companies compete to provide the best coverage at the best price. Insurance companies should be required to keep contracts and plans simple and fair.
- Instead of having to choose from a few insurance companies within their home state, individuals should be able to buy health insurance across state lines. Individuals and families will have a broader selection of plans to choose from in order to meet their specific healthcare needs.
- We must eliminate healthcare insurance discrimination based on age or gender and encourage real competition in the healthcare insurance market.
- Tort reform is essential. Doctors should not be forced to practice “defensive medicine” and order unnecessary and expensive tests and procedures, all of which raise the cost of healthcare.
- The insurance companies should also be required to keep contracts and plans simple and fair.
- We must protect Medicare recipients from any disruptions in their coverage while offering future beneficiaries innovative and common sense solutions in order to ensure that Medicare will be there for them.
- We must reduce and eliminate the regulatory and financial burden that small and medium-size business owners face due to Obamacare.
- America’s healthcare problems will be solved by private sector creativity and not by bureaucratic central planning.
- Instead of creating a bureaucratic-run health care system that is not centered around the patient, we need to implement sound fiscal policies and free market solutions that will empower individuals to choose affordable healthcare plans that are tailored to their own needs.
