We support using a single payer health insurance system.
Health care coverage must be comprehensive and there should be public education to promote healthier life style choices.
Until such time as universal single payer coverage is enacted, we support a 100 percent tax deduction for health insurance premium paid by the self-employed, and we support equalization of Medicare payments to rural and urban hospitals alike.
We support incentives for the purpose of encouraging doctors to practice in rural and other underserved areas. Doctors who receive aid to practice in Kansas for a specified period of time be required to fulfill their obligation. We support prescription coverage under the Medicare and medicaid system.
We oppose the sale of Kansas Blue Cross Blue Shield.
