This article provides a history and overview of the private health coverage system in the United States, and a discussion of legal and policy-related problems with this coverage. It additionally offers suggestions for revising our health care system to provide greater, more consistent, more cost effective coverage for everyone through the institution of universal primary care coverage, and select public expansions to cover catastrophic and specialist care.
