When virus recedes, GOP plans to unleash sweeping health care reform plan

Just the News:

When the coronavirus crisis slows, congressional Republicans plan to unleash sweeping health care reform proposals that would draw a sharp contrast with Democrats’ Medicare-for-All and public option plans by empowering patients to find cheaper drugs and cheaper insurance while choosing the doctor and treatments they want.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., gave Just the News a broad preview of the emerging GOP plan, promising it would protect patients with pre-existing conditions, remove barriers to cheaper generic drugs and leave doctors and patients, instead of insurers or bureaucrats, in charge of treatment decisions.

“We’ve been working on a number of things that focus on two main issues: one, lowering costs, and two, putting patients in charge of the decisions, not government bureaucrats,” Scalise said during a wide-ranging interview with the John Solomon Reports podcast.
