A middle-ground proposal for making health care premiums more affordable
Published in the Journal of Ambulatory Care Management, July/September 2019.
Passage of any health care reform that addresses the rising cost of health care in the United States will be a difficult political challenge unless a middle-ground compromise between government control of health care insurance and free market approaches can be found. On the basis of the competitive market for Medicare supplemental insurance, a Medicare Adherence Policy insurance option is proposed that would leverage Medicare’s authority to set prices to create a practical middle-ground reform that can strike a balance between the role of government and the free market.
