Howard Mills on Health Care


Health Care is a human right

I believe that Health Care is a human right. I strongly opposed Sen. Clinton's 1993 national health care proposal, but I believe we need to continue to move toward a stronger national health care policy. I support tax credits for taxpayers who choose to purchase health insurance that is not sponsored by their employers, a simplified set of flexible medical savings account options, and a refundable tax credit to lower-income working individuals & families for the purchase of private health care coverage.

Health Marts: co-ops of workers, employers & insurers

I support the concept of "Health Marts". Health Marts would be co-ops of workers, employers, insurers, and consumers. Instead of picking the health insurer for all the company's workers, the employer would sign up with a Health Mart. The Health Marts would offer workers a wide range of health coverage choices. People who like HMOs could then still choose them. Those who did not want HMOs could choose traditional insurance, or a Medical Savings Account.
