We believe Washington has no place in your exam room
It’s been said that a government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take everything you have. This includes your ability to choose your own physician and health care plan.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Protecting your rights and your care
At Physicians for Reform, we have crafted a smarter health care plan that puts coverage, protection, and choice back in your hands, while addressing our nation’s mounting debt. We can be fiscally-responsible and at the same time offer health care that:
- gives you the freedom to choose the plan you want
- reduces drug prices
- protects those with pre-existing conditions
- stays with you through job changes, job losses and moves
- is governed by a free-market health care system, where insurance companies must compete to offer you the best plan at the lowest price
Fix the System with Personalized Healthcare
Your Health. Your Doctor. Your Wallet. Your Choice.
Who do you want to make your personal, private, and sometimes difficult medical decisions? You and your doctor? Or a bureaucrat in Washington?
Remember, whoever pays holds the power to choose.
Personalized Healthcare puts you and your doctor back at the center of American healthcare.
1: You control your own healthcare dollar.
Because you own your own personalized plan you are in control. You can use your plan for
yourself & your loved ones, and/or pass it on to your children with your estate.
2: Because you own your own health insurance policy, it goes with you if you change or lose your job.
Employers do not pay corporate tax on money spent providing health insurance for their employees, and employees do not pay personal income tax on their health benefits. However, individuals purchasing individual insurance do not enjoy these tax breaks. This explains why the vast majority of Americans receive their health insurance through the workplace. This limits consumer choice.
By leveling the playing field, individuals would be free to purchase insurance with the same advantages as those who get their health insurance through the workplace.
3: You are protected if you have a pre-existing condition.
Guaranteed Coverage Pools in each state give you, and every American, the assurance that even if you have a pre-existing condition, you have access to affordable health insurance.
4: The cost of your prescription drugs will come down.
The skyrocketing cost of medicines is fueled by unnecessary middlemen and profiteers who will no longer stand between you & the medicine you need.
5: Rein in the runaway cost of insurance.
In every industry, transparency, choice & competition lowers prices & drives innovation. Because you control your healthcare dollars, insurance companies will compete for your business with insurance plans that provide what you need at prices you can afford. No more paying for expensive “one size fits all” insurance.
6: Remove bureaucratic roadblocks that interfere with your care when you are sick.
Red tape and regulations eat up over half of your doctors’ time, limiting the time they can spend with you. Eliminating needless bureaucracy & regulations lets your doctor focus on what they really care about – you!
7: See the doctors you want to see when you need to see them.
When you control your healthcare dollar you get to see the doctor you need and choose. Without middlemen and bureaucrats standing between you and your doctor, you will be amazed at how affordable routine medical care really is.
8: Reduce your cost of healthcare by protecting doctors from frivolous lawsuits.
Physicians often order every conceivable test simply to protect themselves against a possible frivolous and expensive lawsuit. This increases the cost of medical care by endless billions.
