The urgent need for health care reform has become a major issue in political, social and business arenas. Lawmakers at both the state and federal levels have proposed a vast array of solutions for providing healthcare to an estimated 48 million uninsured Americans. Meanwhile, the rising cost of health insurance is pushing growing numbers of middle-class workers and small business owners into abandoning adequate healthcare coverage.
But there is reason to be optimistic. Today a general consensus exists among our elected officials that something must be done. Even so, there remains a lack of a common vision as to how healthcare reform should be accomplished and implemented.
For example, in Massachusetts, buying health insurance is now mandatory, but the premiums being offered by private insurance companies are seen to be too expensive for the average state resident’s budget of putting the plan into effect. And on a federal level, lawmakers like Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-MA) believe a single-payer plan such as Medicare may be the best solution for providing universal coverage. Others believe private insurers are best positioned to implement such coverage.
