Transformational Health Care Reform

Six reforms to increase access, affordability, and care

  1. Expand affordable private insurance
  2. Establish and liberalize universal health savings accounts (HSAs)
  3. Introduce appropriate incentives with rational tax treatment of health spending
  4. Modernize Medicare for the twenty-first century
  5. Overhaul Medicaid and eliminate the two-tiered system for poor Americans
  6. Strategically enhance the supply of medical care while ensuring innovation

How to think about health care reform

  • Fixing healthcare begins with changing the incentives and empowering consumers to seek value with their money, while increasing competition among providers
  • Making health savings accounts (HSAs) universal would improve choice, quality, and value.
  • The goal for improving coverage should begin with expanding private health insurance, not more government-run health insurance
