Practical actions toward reforms
By Aaron Fausz, Ph.D., and

1. Price Transparency.
Continue to demand transparency of prices and quality of care in all aspects of healthcare, i.e. hospitals, clinics, etc. This will expose the huge, unnecessary variation in prices for the same procedures, and will enable customers to shop for low cost, high-quality health care like we do for everything else!
2. Allow Health Insurance to be Sold Across State Lines. Eliminate restrictions on insurance portability across state lines. Consumers should be able to go online and choose policies offered by large numbers of insurance companies with a wide variety of plans. This will allow consumers to purchase exactly what they need with nothing extra (just like they can do for their homeowners, auto, life and other types of insurance not provided by employers).
