A Consumer Wish List for Health Care

Published March 3, 2020

Below is a list what a consumer-driven health care plan should include, according to John C. Goodman, of the Goodman Institute and Marie Fishpaw, of the Heritage Foundation. 

  • Personal and portable health insurance that travels with you from job to job and in and out of the labor market.
  • Round-the-clock access your physician — by phone, email, and Skype.
  • Virtual “doctor visits” in your own home – avoiding traffic, long waits and trips to emergency rooms.
  • An alternative to Obamacare that would have lower premiums, lower deductibles, and access to the best doctors and the best hospitals.
  • New opportunities to take control of your care, with health accounts you own and control.
