AHIP has released its universal health care plan, which seeks to reduce by 30% the growth in U.S. health care expenses and cut costs by more than $500 billion between 2010 and 2014. The plan recommends Congress set a five-year cost goal and establish a public-private advisory group to find ways to lower spending, including changes to the reimbursement system. The plan also would ensure coverage for all Americans, with a refundable, advanceable tax credit to allow low-income people to buy private insurance.
