Health care without any fine print

"Universal health care", "health care reform", and similar phrasings are such mouthfuls of words that are also vague and confusing, and they do not tell you what you really want and need to know. We need a better slogan, and here it is:

Health care without any fine print

No fine print. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Not even a line requiring you to sign your name.

My requirements for any credible health care reform "package" are simply as follows:

  1. Care is universal. Everyone is covered and all treatments are covered. Period. No fine print about people or conditions that "may" not be covered fully.
  2. No non-medical information is needed before receiving care. An ID may be provided, but only to facilitate access to medical records for medical treatment.
  3. Anywhere and anytime. No restrictions as to where or when a person can receive care.
  4. No fine print! Really! No document is needed to describe anything other than the preceding three points. That's it! Really!

That's it! Really!

Oh, and one other thing, before I forget... No fine print!
