Health Care Reform: An Introduction
Bernadette Fernandez (au); Hinda Chaikind (au); Chris L. Peterson (au); Bob Lyke (au)
Health care reform is a major issue in the 111th Congress, driven by growing concern about millions of people without insurance coverage, continual increases in cost and spending, and quality shortcomings. Commonly cited figures indicate that more than 45 million people have no insurance, which can limit their access to care and ability to pay for the care they receive. Costs are rising for nearly everyone, and the country now likely spends over $2.5 trillion, more than 17% of gross domestic product (GDP), on health care services and products, far more than other industrialized countries. For all this spending, the country scores but average or somewhat worse on many indicators of health care quality, and many may not get appropriate standards of care.These concerns raise significant challenges. Each is more complex than might first appear, which increases the difficulty of finding solutions. Contents of this report: (I) Introduction; (II) Three Predominant Concerns: Coverage; Cost and Spending; Quality; (III) Some Likely Legislative Issues: The Scope of Reform; Public or Private Insurance; Employment-Based Insurance; The Role of States; (IV) The Cost of Reform; (V) Congressional Proposals.
