The high level of uninsurance in the United States is due in large measure to the tax treatment of health care, which is based on the tax exclusion for company-provided plans.
Correcting the perverse incentives for providers and patitents resulting from this tax treatment is the crucial step to creating a national health care system that is affordable and efficient.
The Heritage Foundation proposal calls for the elimination of the current tax exclusion and its replacement with a system of refundable tax credits for the purchase of health insurance and medical services.
