Tackling High Costs

American consumers pay more for health care than people in any other country. Purchasers of health care in the private insurance market pay most of all. PBGH seeks to uproot the economic distortions in the nation’s health care payment and delivery system to ensure that health care is affordable and accessible to everyone in the country. We support policies to improve competition and transparency, and — where necessary — give regulators the ability to ensure fair and reasonable prices for health care.
