Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar said Thursday that the Trump administration is working to deregulate health care with the goals of reforming the individual insurance market, lowering prescription drug prices, and creating a “value-based” health care system. “Today, fixing American health care requires disrupting government-dictated systems, building new ones that encourage choice and competition, and … letting private innovators chart the future and refusing easy gimmicks takes some courage,” Azar said in a speech at The Heritage Foundation’s headquarters on Capitol Hill.
