New federal report: Reforming America’s Healthcare System Through Choice and Competition

The Departments of Health and Human Services, Treasury and Labor collaborated to develop a 119-page report which identifies challenges to and recommendations for improving the health care system in the United States. The report describes the influence of state and federal laws, regulations, guidance, and policies on choice and competition in health care markets and identifies actions that states or the federal government could take to develop a better functioning health care market.

Rural relevant issues addressed include scope of practice, workforce mobility and telehealth. This report also identifies four areas where federal and state rules inhibit adequate choice and competition and offers recommendations for improving public policy in each of these four areas: Healthcare workforce and labor markets; health care provider markets; health care insurance markets; and consumer-driven health care.
