Health Policy

Healthcare


 

Care:

Doctors & hospitals must be “non-profit”. A law must be passed so that doctors cannot make commission off of prescriptions or medicine.

Coverage:

The USA will use the Single Payer method that the UK uses. You cannot be denied coverage due to a pre-existing condition. Menstrual devices such as tampons and menstrual cups will be free through your insurance. Any medicine that involves HIV/AIDS will be free under insurance. Contraceptives will be free under your insurance (with a limit of about 60 condoms a month). The WIC program will be expanded. All drugs for seniors, minors, and disabled people will be free under insurance.

Pricing & Prescription Supply:

Require medicare to use its bargaining power to negotiate with Big Pharma. Allow individuals, pharmacists, and wholesalers to import prescription drugs from licensed Canadian pharmacies, Suspend the government’s authority to destroy packages of imported drugs at the border until new legislation is passed ensuring that Americans can import safe and affordable drugs from Canada, Require generic drug companies to pay an additional rebate to Medicaid if their drug prices rise faster than inflation, Prohibit anti-competitive deals – “pay-for-delay” deals – between brand and generic drug makers, Require drug companies to publicly report information that affects drug pricing (Companies routinely distort the true cost of drug research and development to justify skyrocketing prescription drug prices.

Drug makers would be required to report certain price information to the federal government and the public on their products, including the total expenditures on research and development and clinical trials, as well as the portion of their drug development expenses offset by tax credits or paid for by federal grants), Companies also be required to submit price, profit, and sales information for other countries in which the drug is sold, ensure LGBT Americans have access to comprehensive health insurance which provides appropriate coverage and do not have to fear discrimination or mistreatment from providers, Include U.S Territories in the Single Payer Healthcare System, clean up Rio’s water in Brazil, tax on foods which are not labeled healthy* (you can be exempt from that tax if you have diabetes or a health condition)
