Here's physicians' No. 1 wish for healthcare legislation

Physicians revealed their wish list for healthcare legislation in a recent survey conducted online by Toluna.

Toluna, which provides real-time research, surveyed a national sample of 423 physicians from the company's healthcare panel between June 23 and July 5. The survey took place after Senate Republicans unveiled the initial draft of their healthcare bill, but prior to the latest version of their Better Care Reconciliation Act released July 13.

Toluna found the top physician recommendations for healthcare legislation are: Medicare-for-all or single-payer system (10 percent); no Medicaid cuts (8 percent); coverage for pre-existing conditions (6 percent); federal government should collaborate with physicians to come up with the best healthcare legislation — "government can not effectively create a healthcare bill that isn't politically driven" (5 percent); and malpractice reform (4 percent).
