Options for Federal Coverage of the Uninsured in 2005

×

Current approaches to reducing the number of uninsured include insurance tax credits for individuals and employers, expanding private group coverage, expanding eligibility for public programs, creating new public programs, and reforming insurance markets. Proposals vary in how they would expand coverage, how many uninsured would be covered, and how much they would cost. Although the costs of expanding coverage are significant, so are the costs of high uninsured rates. Moreover, expanding coverage would likely lead to substantial gains in health and productivity.
