The new U.S. health care system needs a new focus on care delivery, a new approach to prevention, and a new understanding of the role of patients, according to a bipartisan health-care reform commission created by President Donald Trump.
The panel, chaired by former Republican Sen. Mike Enzi of Wyoming, is being held in Washington, D.C., and will discuss the next steps to reform the nation’s health care delivery system.
Its recommendations include the establishment of a single, unified health care payment system that will allow hospitals, doctors and other providers to make their own payments for services, and the creation of a Medicare for all program that would cover all patients in the country.
“The goal is to create a single system where patients have access to the same quality care,” Enzi said in a statement.
The recommendations, which are based on the principles of “cost containment,” “patient-centered care,” and “cost sharing,” are the first of many needed reforms to transform health care in the United States.
“We need to find new ways to pay for health care,” he said.
“We are not doing it on the backs of Americans.
We need to change that.”
The commission’s members include Republican Sen .
Mike Enlai, Republican Gov.
Gary Herbert and Democratic Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts.
The commission will release its recommendations in the coming months.
Enlais proposal is likely to be the most contentious of the group.
“This is a huge undertaking.
It’s a big undertaking for a bunch of people,” Enlauis chief of staff, David P. Johnson, told ABC News.
“There’s no doubt we’ll have a good conversation, but this is an incredibly important thing that we’re talking about and that will be the centerpiece of the effort.”
Health care experts and advocates for a single payer health system, or “Medicare for all,” have long argued that the U.K.’s nationalized system of universal health care is a far better option than the U,S.
The idea is to bring the cost of health care into line with the cost per person of private insurance and provide universal coverage for all, as the U S. has done for decades.
While the commission is not recommending a single-payer system, it is recommending that the federal government work with states to provide “coverage to all Americans, regardless of their health status, income, or race.”
It is expected that the commission will recommend changes to the way the federal and state governments fund health care.
The president has proposed funding for Medicare for All, but has not said how much.
The commission also will recommend that all states be required to expand Medicaid, the federal health insurance program for low-income people, and will recommend how much that would cost.
Enlai said that he and his colleagues hope to bring “much needed reforms” to the U of A system.
“Our plan is to take this work forward and get it right,” he told ABCNews.
Enlam, the UWA President, told the Associated Press that the idea of a new system is “something that I have never dreamed of and never will dream of.”
“We are so proud of the work that we have done over the years to get the system working and where we are today,” he added.
“But this is a new direction.”
The UWA was founded in 1919 by a group of physicians from the University of Wyoming and was the first school to offer an undergraduate degree in medical school in the state.
In 1929, Enlali graduated with a bachelor’s degree in medicine.
“I don’t know if I’m ever going to see another medical school with such a distinguished reputation,” Enlam told the AP.
