Quality, Affordable Health Care for Bermudians First

The cost of health insurance is causing real hardship to Bermudian families. As a country, we must recognise the fact that our healthcare system is not servicing our needs. The PLP is committed to reducing the cost of health care while improving outcomes and promoting healthy living. We must also adequately deal with mental health and the scourge of addiction in our communities.

MANAGING THE UNSUSTAINABLE COST OF HEALTH CARE

Your next PLP Government will:

  • Implement the National Health Plan to reduce healthcare costs for all Bermudians.
    Unknown None
  • Allow small businesses to join with other small businesses to obtain group medical insurance coverage through local insurance providers. The sharing of risk across these small businesses will lead to reduced costs.
    Unknown None
  • Reduce healthcare costs through greater competition in the local insurance market and through the use of technology to make healthcare delivery more efficient.
    Unknown None
MENTAL HEALTH AND ADDICTION

Your next PLP Government will:

  • Conduct a comprehensive review of mental health services in Bermuda and make progressive reforms to adequately address mental health challenges in our community.
