I think we need some version of a National Health Care Program to be administered by a non-political, non-corporate, non-partisan body. The bottom line is that the profit motive and protection of shareholders is the prime cause of our soaring health care and drug costs. We MUST create a system that focuses on people, their access to care, innovative treatments, outcome based care, affordable life-sustaining medications like insulin, etc. Some years ago the Mayo Clinic created a very workable and interesting concept for a health care system. I highly suggest consulting care-giving systems such as the Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic and others like them as we consider transitioning away from a private insurance based system. Further, tax-exemptions should be removed from employers for providing health insurance and those dollars instead funneled into a National Healthcare system for every American.
