Competition, Transparency, Accountability
The majority of healthcare spending is driven by monopolistic hospital systems. To lower costs, we need effective market-based solutions that increase competition in local markets, drive efficiency in the delivery of healthcare, and inform patients about the cost and quality of care received.
We support strengthening market competition, so hospitals compete on the value they provide to patients instead of on their size. We believe policies designed to discourage competition drives up healthcare costs. We support transparency in pricing and letting the free market work. History has shown that increased price exposure and competition among providers will drive down prices while improving the quality of care provided. Finally, we believe enforcing accountability stops bad actors from gaming the system to drive revenue.
