Galen Senior Fellow Brian Blase offers recommendations for Congress on health reform, detailing four priorities Congress should enact and two prominent proposals to avoid.
Here is a quick overview of his latest piece in Forbes, “What Congress Should and Should Not Do on Health Care.”
- codify the Trump administration’s price transparency rules
- prohibit balance billing
- expand health savings accounts, and
- provide states with greater Medicaid flexibility.
Congress should not:
- subsidize health insurance through a COBRA continuation subsidy or expanded ACA subsidies, nor
- provide a state bailout.
