ABOUT NRCC PHYSICIANS' COUNCEL FOR RESPONSIBLE REFORM-The purpose of the new NRCC Physicians' Council for Responsible Reform is to ensure that healthcare reform actually improves, not undermines, what is in fact the highest quality healthcare in the world. American healthcare does need improving. Costs are too high. Too many people are uninsured. Insurance is too costly and bureaucratic. And issues such as billing inefficiencies, malpractice insurance costs, and mountains of paperwork are driving doctors out of the profession when we are already suffering a severe shortage of primary care physicians.
