The Public Knows the Candidates' Views on Healthcare Reform, But Do the Candidates Know What Healthcare Professionals Think?
Date:10/14/2008

ASHEVILLE, N.C., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Senator McCain believes it to be a responsibility; Senator Obama, a right. While both candidates believe that healthcare reform is a high priority, they disagree on the methods necessary to fix this problem. But do they know which plan physicians support? A new study from DoctorDirectory of more than 900 physicians of all specialties was designed to assess attitudes on universal healthcare as it relates to the upcoming election.

While physicians indicate that the economy, not healthcare, is the most important issue facing voters in the upcoming election, they are, like the candidates, split in regards to healthcare reform.

DoctorDirectory asked if they believe that universal healthcare insurance will significantly improve access to healthcare for all Americans. 38.6% of physicians believe it will not improve access, while 33.9% responded that it will improve access, and 27.5% are unsure.

When asked "Do you believe that healthcare should be mandated for all Americans?" 42.7% of responders report that healthcare should be mandated for all Americans while 40.4% feel that it should not be mandated.

And who should pay for a universal healthcare insurance program? 26.9% think it's the responsibility of individuals with support from tax credits and healthcare accounts. 1.5% believe employers should foot the bill. 8.1% believe the responsibility lies with the federal government. However, the majority of responders (63.5%) support some combination of payors.
