Green Party on Health Care
The Green Party considers health care a human right, and therefore supports a single-payer national insurance program for the United States. This program would be publicly financed at the national level, administered locally, and privately delivered, i.e., private physicians, hospitals, and other health care providers would remain private and competitive, and consumers given full choice of provider.
The Green Party believes, based on comparison with other nations that have enacted similar programs, that such a program would be more economical and would save money in many areas. In order to enact this program, we must dismantle the current managed care system.
The current system’s high costs and widely recognized failures demand that bold, not incremental steps, be taken. The Green Party states with a clear voice its strong support for UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE. We endorse NATIONAL HEALTH INSURANCE and UNIVERSAL ACCESS without concern for work status or health history.
