Election 2020: What Do You Think of the Presidential Candidates’ Healthcare Plans?

September 23, 2020

Many healthcare professionals, patients, and voters of all political opinions think the US healthcare system needs to change, but they don't agree on how.

As a presidential candidate, Joe Biden has spoken about his healthcare policies, such as building on the Affordable Care Act with a public option for insurance coverage. President Donald Trump expresses intentions to replace the Affordable Care Act and encourage competition among insurers, but he has not yet released a detailed plan for doing so.

Both Biden and Trump say lowering prescription drug prices is important, and the president has signed executive orders addressing the issue.

Are the candidates' healthcare policies important for getting your vote?
