A CarePrint for the Future: Winning the Health Care Gold Medal

                At its best, our health system is among the most expensive in the world – with over 50% of personal bankruptcies caused by an inability to pay medical debt – yet still delivers quality outputs and health outcomes below that of most developed nations. Addressing the deficiencies and disparities within our medical delivery system must be a top priority to restore our economy and stem the tidal wave of personal medical bankruptcies. The federal government must ensure universal access to basic primary, chronic disease, and psychiatric care for all Americans, as well as in-home and skilled nursing home care for the elderly.

                The failure to deliver medical care that is both financially efficient and clinically effective has had a deleterious effect on our individual longevity, the quality of our lives, and our economic well-being. Comprehensive and meaningful reform is required for us to compete on the international stage, but more importantly, it will demonstrate that we understand that the health of our society is directly linked to the physical, psychological, and financial health of every individual and that caring for others is the highest American ideal.

                The Alliance Party believes we must provide every American with a publicly funded basic single payer health plan. A plan where the patient chooses and employs their personal physician: not a large hospital system or government agency. This universal single payer basic health care plan should be administered by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which already pays for 70 percent of America’s health care costs. If citizens want more or different coverage than the basic plan provides, they can pay for it. The taxpayer-funded universal access health plan would provide coverage without a copay for services within its scope.
