  1. To combat abuse and health neglect of a Universal Healthcare System, rewards or incentives should be offered to those who are diligent about maintaining their good health. A small rebate to those who do not use the system for the year. The incentives should be sufficient to encourage positive participation, but not enough to discourage one from seeking medical attention when it is required.

  2. The individual must be enjoined in their own healthcare. It is counter productive, if healthcare for women is limited to a gynecologist, and then only for birth control during fertile years. Appropriate medical care means the individual understands and participated in care. When a culture relies on shamanistic care, the medical professional should include these measures in their own standards of care.
    No one needs a prescription of proper nutrition, personal hygiene, or behavior!
