    and there really isnt a quick overall fix but rather a few steps needed... extend medicare, a great start, but first you have to fix the reimbursement to providers in order to actually have participants...

    Long term, provide incentives to medical students to participate by lowering education costs... reimbursement really doesnt have to be so high if most of us didnt have 2000$+ a month in student loans for the next 30 years... but that change will take minimum 7 years to actually get those students all the way through training...

    Provide loan forgiveness through expaning the health service corps...

    there are a lot of ways to trade dollars here or there, but the bottom line is that if you dont have providers on board any change wont work...
