Reform Party on Health Care
Strongly opposes a government-run entitlement program
Unlike 'Obamacare', our party strongly opposes a government run entitlement program. We recognize that our government needs to provide a suitable framework of industry regulations allowing for all Americans to receive adequate affordable
healthcare coverage. Our government must take a pro-active role in working side-by-side with the Insurance and health care industry to reshape its policies when offering coverage that is affordable and readily available to all.

Eliminate junk medical lawsuits; increase cost transparency
The Reform Party SUPPORTS affordable and accessible healthcare based on informed decisions between doctor and patient.Care managed between doctor and patient means that we must remove barriers which prevent doctors and patients from making sound
medical decisions. It also means that patients must understand the true costs and benefits of medical services, and have transparency regarding the quality of care provided by doctors, nurses, and hospitals.

We believe there must be real comprehensive
healthcare reform, which includes physician accountability, elimination of junk medical lawsuits, quality of care, reduced cost, and adequate coverage. Reducing healthcare costs is the first priority for making healthcare affordable for everyone.
