|The Doctors Caucus is committed to ensuring that all Americans have access to quality health care. Doctors believe that chronic illness and cost are two main barriers between patients and quality coverage. Consumer-driven health reforms that seek to put the patient and their physicians in control of how care is accessed can greatly increase a patient’s access to quality health care. Allowing patient’s the freedom to choose a plan that fits their needs – regardless of where they reside – and encouraging the creation of more affordable products for all patients, regardless of age or illness, can help us achieve a more efficient and less costly health care system. Reforming our health care system in a way that equalizes opportunities to purchase health care for all Americans – regardless of means or illness – will ensure that cost and illness are no longer barriers to quality health care in this country.
