Briefing: On Sept. 14, Sen. Patrick Colbeck will host a public healthcare townhall event in Northville to share proven free-market healthcare solutions to improving Michigan’s medical landscape.

“There is a group of elected officials, physicians and insurance experts who are passionately seeking to improve healthcare while lowering costs. This townhall presents a prime opportunity to meet them and explore innovative health care options that benefit employers, physicians and patients,” Sen. Colbeck said.

The town hall will feature:

  • An overview of the health care options available to Michigan residents;
  • Information on direct primary care services;
  • Information on coverage solutions for non-primary care services like hospitalization; and
  • Examples of actual plans implemented by employers.

“We can take advantage of free-market loopholes within the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare), such as direct primary care services and self-funded insurance plans to restore control of healthcare decisions back to patients and doctors,” Sen. Colbeck said. “It is time to make Michigan the center of a free-market revolution in healthcare that will yield increases in healthcare quality and cost-saving benefits.”
