HEALTHCARE

POLICY CENTER

IT'S TIME FOR CHANGE

60%

of all bankruptcies in the United States are caused by medical expenses. Administrative costs alone account for one-third of all medical prices.

79%

of Americans are dissatisfied with the healthcare system.

Prosperity Utah’s Healthcare Policy Center advances policy change that decreases the cost and increases the quality of healthcare in the United States. Our goal is to ensure that every American can receive the lifesaving healthcare that they need.

POLICY FOCUSES

  • The Opioid Crisis - 130 Americans die everyday from opioid overdoses. Many become addicted by medication that was legally prescribed to them. We need to reform our system now.
  • Education in K-12: In the past 30 years, the number of US physicians has increased by 150%. In that same time, the number of healthcare administrators have increased by 3200%. We need to inspire more kids to become doctors to increase the amount of care our system can provide.
  • Competitiveness in the industry - Innovation is the key to a stronger healthcare system. Cures for cancer, HIV, and more are still ahead of us. We identify and reform policies that chill innovation and progress in healthcare.
  • Lower costs - There is no greater barrier to saving lives than the high cost of healthcare. We seek policy change that will make healthcare affordable and accessible to everybody.
