Promote Hospital Competition

Why this matters

At the start of 2021, nearly 70% of U.S. physicians were employed by hospitals or other corporate entities, leaving just 3 out of 10 of the nation’s physicians practicing in independent medical practices. When major monopolistic hospital systems enter a local market and buy up competing hospitals and physician practices, they abuse their market dominance to charge patients egregious price markups. 

Better Solutions for Healthcare supports policies that promote economic competition through a fair and open marketplace, combat market-power abuse, and protect consumers from price gouging by enabling choice, higher-quality services, and lower costs.

Prices at monopoly hospitals are 12% higher than those in markets with 4 or more competitors.
