Abstract

The United States numbers three hundred million according to latest Census Bureau estimates. Forty-seven million, including many non-citizens, are uninsured. That is sixteen percent of the total United States population with no health insurance. Millions more have inadequate coverage and are in danger of losing that. Private, corporatized medical coverage structured by the insurance industry is the basis for the current system. This Article is an attempt to lay out the principle health care issues, to look at the alternatives and the cost of those alternatives, and to try to determine whether there is a particular regime that, despite its imperfections, is the best available to us now.

Keywords: Health Care Law, Policy
