For thirteen years
The Society for The Education of Physicians and Patients (SEPP) and
likeminded defenders of patient freedom and the profession of medicine have
educated, promoted, and fought for restoring sound American principles to
healthcare. With the specter of nationalized healthcare under the previous
administration and the private sector equivalent of socialized healthcare in
the form of Managed Care, SEPP has collaborated with more than thirty
organizations nationally to promote and reinvigorate the critical and sacred
bond of the physician—patient relationship.
There are those who want to control patients and physicians from government
to third parties to employers to legislators. Health Savings Accounts are a
potent weapon against those who would attempt to compromise patient freedom.
The battle against large controlling, rationing, and destructive
bureaucracies is not over.
To wage the battle for freedom in healthcare patients must be in control of
their healthcare dollars. Health Savings Accounts are the most effective
method to achieve this short of removing the discriminatory tax treatment
favoring employer based non -portable, non market- driven health financing.
Today we witness the growth and movement of Health Savings Accounts from a
hard fought grassroots endeavor to the status of a realized success.
