Washington Examiner has an opinion piece on Pres. Trump’s proposed (or initiated/) healthcare reforms:
“Patient choice and control are at the heart of Trump’s plan. It includes alternative forms of coverage, such as association health plans and short-term limited duration plans. It invests in telehealth services, which have been critical for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. It gives major discounts to seniors for their prescription drugs. The plan increases access to direct primary care, which all but eliminates the insurance bureaucracy that decides what patients will and won’t get.
Perhaps most importantly, it requires price transparency, so patients know what services and procedures cost before they are forced to pay for them. It tips the scales in favor of patients to lower premiums and the cost of care. There will be no more surprise billing bankrupting families.”
