The federal gov't subsidies to the medical industry are currently $1.2 trillion/year. That indirectly subsidizes new research costs, which is largely money-driven by companies and startups in response to generics and expired patents making previous inventions unprofitable. The private sector and med university researchers know how to keep that money train coming from Washington: keep inventing new care treatments and devices, even if the generics and expired patented items worked fine before.
The ONLY way to stop med inflation is to remove the public subsidies for care. Including revamping the insurance business model. Make it into a post-care billing and payments sliding scale system for extended families based on their verified level of wealth. Abolish employer pools, which also subsidize via high premiums the med industry inflation. And require when licensed that med industry care for the needy patient as true charity (not reimbursed), but cut taxes down to 0% on med industry and workforce in return.
To increase number of primary care while reducing med school costs, require that med student graduates spend several years caring for patients in return for $0.00 tuition costs. Pay them a stipend and record their job performance for future jobs elsewhere, to encourage compliance.
