Analysis of Health Reform Bills Highlights Similarities, Differences, Impacts, and Costs

A Commonwealth Fund report published earlier today analyzes the similarities, differences, potential impacts, and costs of the three comprehensive health reform bills passed by key U.S. congressional committees. As explained in the report and an online slide presentation narrated by Karen Davis, Fund president and report coauthor, the Senate and House bills all include provisions that seek to expand and improve health care coverage by building on the strongest aspects of our current private–public insurance system and reorganizing and regulating the individual and small-group insurance markets.

In addition to the report and slide presentation, you can also view interactive tables that provide side-by-side comparisons of the system reform and insurance coverage provisions in the three bills. As health reform legislation evolves, be sure to visit for updates to the report and companion resources.
