Curing the Cancer in U.S. Healthcare: StatesCare and the Texas Model

Fixing our critically ill healthcare system starts with the root cause: cancer in the federal bureaucracy.The cure for that cancer is called StatesCare. The states know best how to provide health care for their people.

The states should decide how to provide that care. Any “solution” from Washington is one size that most definitely does not fit all.  California wants single payer. Texas wants market-based healthcare. Why should the federal government tell them, No Can Do? The answer is States Care, where states decide healthcare for themselves, and We the People are in charge.  A model of market-based healthcare system is described that the Lone Star State (and others)might favor.

Neither Washington nor third-party insurance is in charge, as the patient decides both spending and medical care. The Lone Star market-based system, called TexasCares, offers both affordable and readily accessible health care.  States might choose a different approach.  StatesCare lets them decide what they want, not what Washington mandates for them.  About the Author: Dr. Deane Waldman, MD, MBA, comes from a family of four generations of physicians.

He went to school or trained at Yale, Chicago Med, Northwestern, and Harvard, and was chief of cardiology (pediatric) at University of Chicago.  A clinical as well as a research and teaching physician for 37 years, “Dr. Deane” has authored 10 books and more than 400 articles on healthcare topics. He is currently the director of the Center for Health Care Policy at Texas Public Policy Foundation.  He believes that America’s healthcare system can best be fixed (“cured”) when approached as a doctor would treat a sick patient.
