The Working Group on Health Care Policy aims to devise public policies that enable more Americans to get better value for their health care dollar and foster appropriate innovations that will extend and improve life.

Key principles to guide the group's policy formation include focusing on the central role of individual choice and competitive markets in financing and delivering health services, individual responsibility for health behaviors and decisions, and appropriate guidelines for government intervention in health care markets.
