WELLNESS & PREVENTION
Let’s do more.
Wellness & Prevention – Critical Priorities.
By eliminating administrative waste, we can use the savings to cover more people, improve benefits and reduce out-of-pocket expenses. The AllCare Alliance supports policies that free up resources for such priorities as Wellness and Prevention, community health education and parity in mental health and substance abuse treatment.
Funding Wellness & Prevention
Administering our current healthcare system is too expensive and everybody pays too much. Providers, patients and employers struggle with hundreds of different insurance policies, all with different benefits, codes, provider networks, approved treatments, formularies and costs.
In addition, patients often don’t understand their policies and end up owing more than they expected. And doctors incur significant expenses billing insurance companies and tracking payments, never mind the burdensome requirements to win approval for necessary treatments and medicines.
Even after reform, billions of dollars intended for health care ends up re-directed to executive salaries, dividends and more. By contrast, Medicare’s current overhead is less than two percent (2%), coverage and reimbursements are standardized and provider networks are very robust.
