BLHCT is about fixing whats broken.
Business Leaders for Health Care Transformation is a coalition of business leaders, CEOs, entrepreneurs, sole proprietors, and concerned citizens who believe that the employer-based health insurance system is fundamentally broken and hinders American competitiveness. We have members from every state and nearly every industry in the country.
Business Leaders for Health Care Transformation’s mission is to educate the public and the business community about the economic development potential of fixing our broken health care system.
Business Leaders for Health Care Transformation supports:
A health care system that covers everyone with essential services and care, regardless of their income, background, or job status.
A health care system that is funded fairly and sustainably.
A health care system that allows for portable coverage, where workers retain coverage as they move from job to job.
A health care system that cuts unnecessary waste and spending that have no medical or administrative value.
