Dr. Izenstein: 3 Basics for Health Care Reform

Dr. Barry Izenstein, Governor of the Massachusetts Chapter of the American College of Physicians, in a letter to the editor of the Springfield Republican published November 1, says “Let us not get caught up in silly, petty, unfounded arguments when it comes to health-care reform. Indeed, if the current bill fails, the result will be more uninsured patients and more families going bankrupt because of high health-care premiums and bills.” Dr. Izenstein lays out three objectives for health care reform: provide all american with access to affordable health insurance; create incentives to reverse a “growing and catatrophic shortage” of primary care physicians; and reform the medical liability system.
