Let market forces drive down the cost of medicine

The only answer [to healthcare crises] is to empower people with the ownership of their health. The way to do this is to encourage people to purchase health insurance that pays catastrophic health expenses only and puts the first dollar responsibilities in the hands of people who are the end users of the product. This would create the market forces to drive down the cost of medicine. This can be accomplished with the purchase of high deductible health insurance and obtaining a Health Savings Account.
