9780982139295: Health Care Reform that Makes Sense: A Detailed Plan to Improve the Health Care System by America's Leading Health Care CEO

The intricacies and issues surrounding the health care reform debate are the specialty of Alan B. Miller, CEO of Universal Health Services, Inc. an industry leader operating 138 private hospitals in the United States and Puerto Rico. He addresses health care system's inefficiencies and offers sound solutions. Miller debunks the purported 45.7 million uninsured figure and offers 13 to 16 million, a realistic goal. He dissects what's financially wrong with Medicare and Medicaid; he explains the negative impacts of a single payer system; he tackles the uninsured immigration issue; and places a spotlight on malpractice tort reform and the inadequacies within the insurance industry. If these issues were addressed, Miller contends, the government could save the majority of the $1 trillion earmarked for health care reform. In Reform that Makes Sense, Miller puts politics and punditry aside and simply lays out the facts. He approaches it in medical terms...diagnosis and remedy. For Miller, the answers to the nation's health care problems are found within the private sector, not a sprawling bureaucracy.
