Left-leaning policy wonks, Democrat politicians, and the establishment media have tried to create the impression that only government intervention can resolve the “crisis” of American health care. However, as David Hogberg points out, they have ignored some interesting and significant free market innovations:

As of late, there are some very hopeful developments, ones that move our health care system away from one that is mismanaged by the government and toward one that is more market driven.

Among the most interesting of these developments is the reform legislation enacted by the state of Missouri:

Missouri has passed reform that expands free markets by changing the tax treatment of health insurance for those who purchase an individual policy. Called the “Missouri Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act,” it moves the insurance system in Missouri from one that is employer-based to one based more on the individual.

Hogberg’s article discusses a variety of other hopeful free market reforms as well. The full text can be read at the American Spectator.
