Promoting Meaningful Healthcare Reform
American healthcare is mired in controversy. Finding affordable healthcare for pre-existing conditions is a great concern for the population. 

Mandatory healthcare costs don’t necessarily appeal to the healthy uninsured. Young, healthy individuals aren’t all inclined to subsidize healthcare costs for folks who are ailing. Those enrolled in the government option are often plagued with illness or aren’t old enough for Medicare coverage.

A system that empowers and incentivizes everyone to take charge of their own healthcare might make a government-mandated healthcare system more effective.

Listen as Dr. John Newport joins Dr. Holly Lucille to discuss how healthcare reform might actually work.
