Legal & Policy Challenges

Healthcare

Lets create laws that require health care providers (doctors, clinics etc) to publish the dollars/rate they will charge on their products and services -- just like the rest of the free capital markets work. Every consumer can then compare the quality and price and pay according to what they can afford.

 

There is no transparency in the pricing of health care services, today. Everything is hidden behind insurance bills that are drafted by taking into account how much premium I pay - which has nothing to do with the services the provider has provided to me and the amount of money it costs them to do so.

 

The cost that a given dentist incurs on two different patients to provide prophylactic cleaning services, should be exactly the same, dollar for dollar, cent for cent. If they are not, they should be.
