How to find the best gynecologist in your area
U.S. President Donald Trump is considering the possibility of appointing an “insurance czar” to oversee health care in the country.
The move could mean that the Trump administration would be able to provide coverage to millions of people without a mandate, according to a White House report.
Trump said Thursday that the move was a “great thing” and a “big deal” that would provide “insurances for everybody.”
“It’s going to be a great thing, we’re going to have insurance for everybody,” Trump said.
“We’re going for universal health care.
It’s going be a big deal.”
Trump made the comments during a news conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May, where they spoke about the opioid crisis and their shared desire to “fight the opioid epidemic.”
“We have to have health insurance for all,” Trump told reporters.
“You can’t have universal health insurance.
That’s a great way to kill people.”
The U.K. government has estimated that up to 5.5 million people in the U.T. are unable to afford to buy insurance.
It also says that nearly half of all British people who get health insurance through their employer are uninsured.
