Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 03, 2012
With the monumental passing of President Obamas Health Care Reform Bill in Congress, a new study by InsuranceProviders.com finds health insurance cooperatives (co-ops) could provide a resolve between the largely divided American people.
According to the study, a co-op healthcare system is the opposite of the traditional, for-profit healthcare companies where the board of directors is elected by the members. The board of directors also consists of members. This type of democratic healthcare system ensures that every member has a voice.
A co-op healthcare system would also focus on low-cost care, preventative care and the use of generic medications. A large emphasis on the use of locally-produced medicine and local pharmacies would be seen as well.
Several notable quotations from the study include:
While free enterprise is encouraged in the US, there is a big problem with public healthcare providers: their insurance is very expensive.
The biggest difference between co-ops and publicly owned health insurance providers involves who is actually running the insurance company.
Perhaps the greatest potential benefit from the introduction of health insurance co-ops throughout the country is the end of the dangerous monopolies that are threatening to make affordable health insurance beyond easy reach.
Cooperative programs have worked well in other industries such as electricity, natural gas, and even dairy products.
By emphasizing education and preventative medicine, members of cooperative healthcare programs will have fewer health-related problems as they age.

- Medicare Tax? Health Care for the Elderly? Let’s look at the facts about the proposed Medicare Tax … and a medical care program for the aged that already exists! What’s the hurry here? The supporters of the proposed Medicare Tax would have you believe that passage of this controversial bill is urgent … that persons over 5 are deprived of needed medical care because they can’t pay for it. Nothing could be further from the truth. The Kerr-Mills Law, passed by Congress in 1960 – enabled individual states to guarantee to every elderly person who needs help the health care he or she requires. We call this health program … Health Opportunity for the Elderly. Thousands of people every day are being helped by its generous benefits. And unlike Medicare, which would substantially increase your Social Security Tax payroll deductions, existing programs are being paid for now by a part of your present tax dollar! Medicare? NO. Health Care for the Elderly? YES! ….. 1964 American Medical Association Ad, A5157.
