NCHC Writer




The National Coalition on Health Care (NCHC), a broad national alliance of consumers, providers and payers, released a plan for health and fiscal policy at the National Press Club in Washington today.  The plan pairs nearly $500 billion in spending reductions and health-related revenues with longer-term policy changes designed to make health care affordable in the public and private sectors.The 50-page plan, entitled Curbing Costs, Improving Care: The Path to an Affordable Health Care Future, outlines a seven-part strategy to dramatically increase the value Americans get for their health care dollars. NCHC’s plan developed from a year of bimonthly, off-the-record discussions with key health experts and a diverse range of stakeholder groups.  According to Rother, “We learned that curbing costs while improving care is possible if consumers, payers, and providers alike are ready to embrace changes in how our health system operates.”
