Hillary Clinton’s Plan to Lower Medical Costs

doctor-563428_1280Hillary Clinton recently unveiled a plan to help lower medical costs for U.S. citizens.

Under the Democratic presidential candidate’s proposal, patients would be able to visit the doctor three times a year without having to meet their deductible first. Also, they could apply for a new tax credit of up to $5,000 if they face excessive costs, the campaign said Wednesday.

“When Americans get sick, high costs shouldn’t prevent them from getting better,” Clinton said. “With deductibles rising so much faster than incomes, we must act to reduce the out-of-pocket costs families face. My plan would take a number of steps to ease the burden of medical expenses and protect health care consumers.”
