Constitution Party on Health Care

 

  
 


Freedom of choice, not government rationing of services

Hospitals, doctors & other health care providers should be accountable to patients--not to politicians, insurance bureaucrats, or HMO Administrators. If the supply of medical care is controlled by the federal government, then officers of that government will determine which demand is satisfied. The result will be the rationing of services, higher costs, poorer results--and the power of life and death transferred from caring physicians to unaccountable political overseers. We affirm freedom of choice of practitioner and treatment for all citizens for their health care. We support the right of patients to seek redress of their grievances through the courts against insurers & HMOs. We condemn the misrepresentations made by the Administration in securing passage of the recently enacted Medicare prescription drug bill and the use of such legislation to secure government subsidies to special interests such as the HMOs, and to protect the artificially high cost to consumers of prescription drugs.

Opposes the governmentalization of American medicine

The Constitution Party opposes the governmentalization and bureaucratization of American medicine. Government regulation and subsidy constitutes a threat to both the quality and availability of patient-oriented health care and treatment. Hospitals, doctors, and other health care providers should be accountable to patients--not to politicians, insurance bureaucrats, or HMO Administrators.
