Hippocratic OathAn organization that aims to secure health freedom for all has released its Made-in-America Healthcare Act proposal to President Donald Trump.

"The Made in America Healthcare Act (MAHA) is our ten-point plan that the administration could consider," says Twila Brase, R.N., president and co-founder of Citizens' Council for Health Freedom. "We know that President Trump is looking for ideas, really basically a one-page plan of ideas for what the administration can do as a counter to the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare)."

Citizens' Council for Health Freedom recommends President Trump and lawmakers restore indemnity medical insurance that pays the patient, take steps to end the "pre-existing" problem, give seniors freedom to buy private insurance instead of Medicare, and speed patient access to innovative drugs while also lowering prescription costs.

President Trump's recent executive order on Medicare does call for seniors to have the freedom to buy private insurance instead of Medicare.

Brase, Twila (CCHF)"We're thrilled because we have led the charge to make this happen," cheers Brase. "People won't lose access to their Social Security benefits."

She encourages people to learn more about the Made-in-America Healthcare Act and "pass on the plan to their member of Congress to say, 'Here's an idea to bring freedom back to patients and doctors in America.'"

Meanwhile, Citizens' Council for Health Freedom has launched the Patient Toolbox initiative to help patients navigate complex, difficult-to-understand, and often high-pressure situations many Americans experience when they go to a clinic or are admitted to a hospital.
