Healthcare in America
Even with implementation of the ACA, many Americans will be left uninsured and costs will continue to rise.

Where do we go from here?
Public Option
Provide a government-run option for uninsured to purchase. Promote competition with the private market to lower costs.
Universal Coverage
Expand Medicare to all US citizens. Most other Western governments offer universal coverage.

This would necessitate significant tax increases, but many families now pay nearly 10% of their annual income on health insurance.
Focus on Costs
Focus on chronic care coordination
Reduce medical errors
Incentivize healthy behavior
Technology (EMR, e-doctors)
Quality-based measures
Change reimbursement strategy
Focus on preventive care
Focus on public health
Save primary care
