A prescription for change in primary care
Wall Street Journal columnist Benjamin Brewer, MD, outlines his proposal that he says will help improve people's health and the U.S. system of care: by having the government give each person $365 of their tax money back to be spent on primary healthcare. That amount could be paid directly to each person's primary care doctor for a year's worth of services, he says, adding that it could allow everyone to contract privately for medical care for themselves with a primary care doctor without government or insurance company red tape.
