Health­care re­form could use a Simp­son-Bowles-style com­mis­sion

Modern Healthcare - - Comment -

Re­gard­ing the ar­ti­cle “As U.S. Democrats line up be­hind sin­gle payer, some Cana­di­ans are su­ing to al­low pri­vate in­sur­ance” (Modern­Health­, Oct. 10), it’s nice to see an hon­est as­sess­ment of the pros and cons of univer­sal health­care.

The de­bate over the fu­ture of health­care in the U.S. will rage on un­til we get bi­par­ti­san sup­port for a bill. Let’s urge our leg­is­la­tors in Wash­ing­ton to con­vene a com­mis­sion pat­terned af­ter the Simp­son-Bowles com­mis­sion on fis­cal re­form to ad­dress the is­sues of cost and ac­cess in our health­care sys­tem.
