Marianne Williamson on Health Care

 

 


Make Medicare for All a public option

I'd like to see a Medicare-for-All type of plan that's presented as a public option. I think a lot of people would gravitate to that. In addition, if people want private insurance, if they like their private insurers, or want to augment it, then they should be able to. The issue is why are we going to do that. The reason we are going to do that is because you are a citizen of the United States. No citizen in the richest country of the world should have to be worrying about this.

Medicare-for-all plus lifestyle and nutrition support

The biggest problem with America's health care system is that it is not a health care system so much as a sickness care system. It reflects an outdated perspective on health & healing, in which far too little attention is given to the actual cultivation of health and prevention of disease. I will robustly support high-quality universal coverage for every American, including a Medicare-for-all model. In addition, my administration would champion the following policy changes:
  • Require our healthcare system to reimburse medical professionals for a broader array of lifestyle and nutrition support, focused on preventing disease and/or addressing root causes.
  • Provide patients with more robust ongoing support from nutritionists, health coaches, therapists and mental health, exercise specialists, and other peripheral lifestyle treatment providers.
  • Fund programs in all our educational systems designed to teach nutrition and lifestyle skills to help cultivate long-term health.

    Towns should set up physical activities for community health

    We need to develop healthy habits at a community level. Towns and cities can, and should, look collectively at how active their populations are, and institute more ways to increase physical activity through walking paths, bike paths, and community events. The diet of entire cities should be reviewed, as well as ways that communities can contribute to one another's daily health.
