Campaign themes

Kleinhendler lists the following issues on his campaign website:[2]

  • Pre-Tax Dollars for Health Insurance: "Allow small businesses and individuals to purchase health insurance with pre-tax dollars, as large businesses do."
  • Encourage the use of Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs): "In an ACO, physicians, health providers and medical facilities team up to give coordinated and efficient care for patients. We must facilitate public-private partnerships to see the expansion of ACOs, which will seek to lower expenses and improve the quality of care."
  • Cut the Red Tape: "Allow the sale of health insurance across state lines. That would provide competition against statewide insurance oligopolies and decrease insurance premiums in many states."
  • ​Allow Small Business Health Plans (SBHPs): "Formerly called Association Health Plans, businesses should use these plans to purchase health insurance for their members or self-insure."
  • Enact the Medicare You Can Buy Into Act (H.R. 500): "​The bill would allow any legal resident of the United States to buy into Medicare at cost. It allows Americans to enroll in Medicare, where they would be eligible for coverage under Parts A and B, as well as Part D’s prescription drug access. Because premiums would be equal to cost, the program would pay for itself and provide an affordable alternative to private insurance."
