To My Readers: A Call To Action!


Stanley Feld M.D.,FACP,MACE

I believe President-elect Obama is a smart fellow and wants to do the right thing for all healthcare consumers regardless of class. His decisions will only be as good as the information he receives. Some of his published policies are correct and some are wrong.

His advisors are focused on manipulating the payment systems as they attempt to provide universal healthcare. They are not focused on the abuse by all the stakeholders in the system including patients. Their focus has to be redirected to the abuses in the healthcare system and the repair of those abuses.

I believe in a free enterprise system with appropriate rules and regulations and not in socialized medicine. The rules and regulations have to be in favor of the consumer and not the healthcare insurance industry, the drug companies, the hospital systems or the government. Consumer’s in a price transparent environment with appropriate incentives will make sure they are treated fairly by their physicians.

Patients should control their healthcare dollar and be responsible for their health and healthcare needs in a totally transparent environment. Price transparency and not price controls must be negotiated for the consumer by the government and the healthcare insurance industry.

If patients were motivated by incentives such as retaining healthcare dollars not spent we could eliminate the complications of chronic diseases as well as the obscene administrative costs and excess profits of the healthcare insurance industry.

As readers of my blog you are well aware of my positions as well as the logic of these positions.

President-elect Obama has asked us, ordinary citizens, for input. I am asking for your help in getting these positions before President-elect Obama, his healthcare advisors and your congresspersons before they make a mistake. Below are links to President-elect Obama and your congresspersons.

Thank you,
