Increase consumer protections, such as banning lifetime dollar limits on most benefits and preventing insurance companies from denying coverage due to pre-existing conditions;
Promote prevention and wellness by requiring coverage for many preventive services without a cost to the patient;
Implement economic incentives to improve the quality of healthcare and the efficiency of healthcare systems; and
Curb rising healthcare costs.
