Politicans gave us Obamacare which was a screwed up mess to begin with which was thrust upon the citizens by the Liberals who wanted our healthcare system to be like England's and Canada's which are inherent with problems. Now the Liberals want to do away with Obamacare and give us a "better" version of Ryancare / Obamacare 2.0 which still has a lot of problems. I have a simple plan called Americare and it leaves it in the hands of the citizen consumer, not government.
American citizens with a family will pay their doctor 1.5% of your net income claimed on your taxes not to exceed $1,200 per year. This can be done monthly, quarterly, or semi annually. When seeing the doctor for services, they will pay an additional $20 co-pay for each visit.The doctor then agrees to treat you for your ailments including minor surgery, bone setting, prenatal / etc. without appointment during normal working hours. Medications would be at cost plus 5% for the doctor or pharmacy. No clawbacks permitted. First come; first served. You would need to purchase a family catastrophic insurance plan for hospitalization and treatment for major things like accidents, heart, kidney, liver, surgical trauma, cancer, long term stay, etc. and would be able to purchase insurance across state lines.
Every family participating would be issued an Americare card with your family picture and parent finger print that would be good and accepted nationwide. It could be scanned and, if valid, would be accepted by any doctor in the country. If out of state and you needed a doctor, you could present the card, have it scanned and a bill would be sent to the originating doctor's office for reimbursement to the treating doctor.
Medicare would still exist as would medicaid but with reduced paperwork under a government paperwork reduction initiative. Those on Medicare could opt out of Medicare and pay under the Americare plan. Medicaid recipients would have 1.5% of their EBT / SNAP card deducted to fund Medicaid.
Foreigners who visit must provide their own insurance under their country's travel or specialized travel plans much like Canadians do when they visit here or when we go abroad. . Aliens (illegal or legal - Visa or Green Card) would only get critical care treatment and immunizations as currently exists under law at a hospital. If employed, they can purchase insurance through the 1.25% plan with proof of Visa or Green Card.
I call my plan the Americare Family Plan. I'm a conservative who believes in the KIS Method. Eat your heart out politicians!
