Clinton again pointed to hospitals in eastern Pennsylvania as an example of how healthcare should be administered. "We're going to give all of our [patients] a guarantee that if you go back to a hospital after three months for any reason related to the care you got, we pay for it and it can't be used to raise your premiums, your co-pays or your deductibles," he said. "Guess what, the error rates dropped way down."
