Require insurance; reform Medicare
The myth continues that health reform starts with removing barriers to sick people getting insurance. This will raise premiums, many insured will drop their coverage and premiums will rise further. Only the requirement that everyone carry insurance will allow lower prices for everyone. Starting small could work but the first thing would be to reform Medicare to ensure the right care at the right time for a condition requiring that care (commercial insurers do this now.) Only then can we have the savings to move forward.
