Hirsh Singh on Health Care

 

 


Repeal and replace ObamaCare

To make healthcare affordable, we must: Recognize that "ObamaCare" failed to deliver better care at lower costs and must be repealed and replaced; Implement a healthcare bill that puts doctors and patients first, not insurance companies; Make it a priority to reduce the cost of pharmaceuticals while ensuring consistent quality and safety

Cap malpractice damages; limit frivolous lawsuits

Medical Malpractice & Tort Reform: New Jersey has one of the worst litigation environments in the country--which affects the healthcare industry and doctors specifically with frivolous lawsuits and exorbitant malpractice insurance. As Governor, I plan to address these issues in the following manner:
  • Work to cap malpractice damages.
  • Allow healthcare practitioners to recoup economic damages from frivolous lawsuits.
  • Introduce statute of limitation on claims to prevent abuses.

    Strongly anti-universal coverage, according to AFA survey.

    Singh opposes the AFA survey question on universal coverage

    The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'It is the government's responsibility to ensure everyone has health insurance'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)
