In recent years there have been a number of medical insurance proposals which aim to increase access & affordability for patients whilst also improving overall standards of care. These include:
1) Medicare For All (MFA): This program seeks to provide citizens with universal healthcare coverage by having the government assume full responsibility for financing/administration of services.
2) High Deductible Health Plans (HDHP): This type of plan offers lower premiums in exchange for higher deductibles thus allowing individuals more flexibility when it comes to selecting their preferred treatments whilst still receiving some form of financial protection.
3) Tax Credits: This involves providing eligible individuals/families with tax credits which can then be used towards paying for insurance premiums or other related costs such as copays etc. thus making it easier for them manage expenses over time.
In conclusion, these are just some of the latest medical insurance proposals that have come about recently in order to help improve access & affordability through various means so that everyone can benefit from quality care regardless of their financial situation.
