Specific Market-based Medical Alternatives that Work

The debate in Congress has focused almost entirely on government solutions and while market advocates have brought ideas to bear, like purchasing health insurance across state lines, that have not really been applied at least in the medical sector in the United States.

This article from “The American” which is put out by the American Enterprise Institute discusses six market-based health care reforms that are working today in many states around the country. Rather than more government, these proven ideas should be the basis for health care reforms.

Ideas discussed and explained in the article include:

1. Retail clinics.
2. Retail clinic-hospital partnerships.
3. On-site workplace healthcare clinics.
4. Affordable $4 generic drugs.
5. Prepaid medical plans.
6. Concierge medicine.
