PRESCRIPTIONS FOR HEALTH CARE

IWF’s Prescriptions for Better Health Policy project educates women about the problems with ObamaCare (rising costs, effects on medical profession, etc.) and trying to negotiate specific benefits for women through a government-dominated health care and health insurance marketplace. IWF offers an alternative approach, highlighting constructive, market-based alternatives that put power in the hands of patients and individuals, create a more robust, competitive health insurance marketplace that controls costs, leads to higher quality care, encourages the development of the next generation of treatments and cures, and ensures women can purchase health care that suits the needs of them and their families. Americans deserve the best health care system in the world, which is why we support restoring competition and encouraging real innovation in the health care sector.
