Psychiatric News
Volume 46 Number 14 page 10-10

The report of the Council on Medical Service, approved by delegates at the AMA meeting in June, reaffirms support for the following:

  • A system of individually selected and owned health insurance.

  • Principles for health insurance tax credits and other subsidies.

  • Health savings accounts.

  • The principle that health insurance coverage of high-risk patients should be subsidized through direct risk-based subsidies such as high-risk pools, risk adjustment, and reinsurance, rather than through indirect methods that rely heavily on market regulation.

  • Individual responsibility to obtain a minimum level of catastrophic and preventive coverage. 10_2/inline-graphic-1.gif
