Physician Opinions

A recent survey of almost 2,000 U.S. physicians found:
  • 92% ranked tort reform as the top issue for any health reform legislation
  • 78% wanted private insurance industry reform, including the elimination of pre-existing condition refusals, the elimination of dropped coverage (except in instances of fraud) and portability
  • 67% wanted to allow professional, trade and industry associations to provide healthcare insurance to member groups
  • 61% wanted to allow individuals to opt-out of Medicare or their employer-sponsored plan, and provide credits for them to purchase a plan on the individual market
  • 54% wanted to create an insurance exchange that provides competition on health insurance plans
  • 32% wanted a public option
  • 22% wanted a single payor insurance system
