Who's Getting Hurt
It's the ultimate power struggle
Who should control your personal medical decisions: you and your physician, or Washington DC?
This is the central question behind the health care debate. And while Congress continues to be ineffective at enacting a solution, patients, small business owners, and physicians continue to be hurt by the Affordable Care Act.
- Patients — Not only will millions of Americans remain uninsured, millions of previously insured American now find themselves without the coverage they once enjoyed. One of Physicians for Reform’s highest priorities is to advance healthcare policies that address these needs.
- Physicians — Americans trust working physicians. Early in the debate, a Gallup poll found 73 percent of Americans trusted doctors to reform healthcare, far surpassing politicians of either party.
Physicians for Reform is drawing on physician and healthcare policy expertise nationwide to advance real solutions designed to place patients and their physicians back at the center of American healthcare.
- Business Community— Employers have watched health insurance skyrocket over the past two decades. Healthcare costs now represent one of the primary concerns of the American business community. In an age of tight profit margins and financial uncertainty, businesses must either limit healthcare coverage for their employees or make cuts in other areas.
By joining physicians in calling for needed reforms, the business community can help reduce the cost of healthcare and once again find its own competitive edge in an age of intense global competition.
