Smart Patient Credits (SPC)

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

December 2, 2013 – The Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare, focuses on the access to health insurance which does not necessarily mean affordable medical care for average Americans. The fundamental issue with our health care system is the cost that makes it unaffordable for average Americans. That is why I propose an incentive system that I call “Smart Patient Credits (SPC),” which will not require any legislation, just a smarter application of free-market principles. It would work something like a credit-card rewards program — except that the rewards would accrue from spending less rather than more.
