|The Doctors Caucus is committed to increasing the affordability of health care for all Americans. We all know that the cost of health care is climbing faster than inflation and wages. This increase makes health care less affordable for an increasing number of Americans each year. It is increasingly hard on those who are sick or live on fixed incomes. If our country does not address this increase, it has the potential to add millions more Americans to the ranks of the uninsured in the near future. Physicians understand that the more choices of care and coverage that patients have in front of them, the more that competition can reduce the cost of health coverage. In addition, reducing waste and fraud in our health care system and increasing its efficiency through – among other things – the adoption of Health Information Technology has the potential to save our system billions and transform it into a system for the 21st century.
