H.R.2520: Patients' Choice Act - Free Market Solutions to Healthcare

Our bill changes how health care is taxed, but it is revenue neutral and not a tax increase. By bringing long overdue reforms to our discriminatory tax code, millions of families will end with more money in their pockets and better health care.

State-based exchanges facilitate the purchase of private health insurance based on price and quality. A large variety of plans, including a plan you can tailor to fit your individual or family circumstances, will be available.

The Patients’ Choice Act of 2009 would restore fairness in the tax code and give every American, regardless of employment status, the ability to purchase health insurance by providing an advanceable and refundable tax credit of $2,300 per individual or $5,700 per family.

For a vibrant health care market to function properly, patients must know what services cost and who provides the best service. Uniform and reliable measures of reporting quality and price information should be designed by the stakeholders in health care rather than the heavy‐hand of government.
