Cost Caps and Coverage for All is a comprehensive approach to health care. It protects everyone through two main parts: 1) Cost Caps: Caps premiums, deductibles, and other out-of-pocket costs for everyone based on income: 2) Universal Coverage: Ensures health care is a basic human right by automatically covering everyone not currently insured in an affordable plan. It would be paid for by protecting patients against high prices, realigning incentives to deliver better value for patients, reducing complexity for patients, and targeted tax increases on the wealthy.
