About The Episode:

On this episode, Marc outlines his modest proposal for healthcare reform. He tells us how there would be something in it for Democrats, Republicans, and healthcare consumers.

Key Takeaways:  

We spend far more on healthcare than other developed countries and have the lowest outcomes.

Private affordable universal access systems can be cost-efficient and of quality.

We could keep the employer-based system as a base and have one national health insurance program for others.

Reform would include price reform, pivoting to care management, and ensuring affordable access for all.

We could save between $1.2 and $2.2 trillion annually in today’s dollars once all reforms are in place.

Republicans could take credit for better business competitiveness.

Democrats could be offered some savings to invest in social spending and public health.

We might agree to spend a bit more to ensure on-demand, high-tech care and better access to drugs.

Tackling healthcare reform would take political courage and leadership and abandoning views on the extremes of each party.
