Will the Republican Party’s new healthcare legislation—the Patients’ Choice Act—which is looking to provide a path to universal coverage by redirecting current subsidies for health insurance to individuals really cut the cost of an injured person’s medical bills?

Our firm’s San Diego personal injury attorneys believe that personal injuries can change your life forever.  If you are in a car accident and experience personal injuries, such as whiplash, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, paralysis and enormous amounts of pain and suffering on top of a mountain of medical bills.

As Americans, unfortunately, it appears we are on the brink of a new age of nationalized healthcare, where pretty soon you will not have to worry about paying a medical bill for your medical treatment of personal injuries. But so far it has been a lot of dogs barking—where is the dog bite to follow up the promises?  The pivotal point in the fight over healthcare reform is the question of will the next health-related reform piece of legislation lock in a system of job-based health insurance or allow more individual choice and portability to fit a 21st century work force?

The goals and the methods of both sides are remarkably alike: cover the uninsured, allow people to keep the coverage they have, provide more choices of affordable health insurance for injured persons and lower medical bill costs.

But where they differ is that while the Democrats are trying to get more federal control over healthcare, Republicans and the GOP are looking to move further away—leaving injured persons waiting for someone in the government to pick up the tab on their medical bill costs.

Being personal injury attorneys in San Diego, we believe that no matter which party passes the legislation and makes the national healthcare plan a reality, getting the public not to mention injured persons the best and most affordable medical treatment is the most important thing.
