The U.S. health care landscape continued to evolve in 2015. Americans saw the uninsured rate drop further and changes in health care delivery and payment take effect; studies identified the need to make health care more affordable; and policymakers focused their attention on health care spending, particularly drug spending. Our most viewed pages of the year reflect these changes and more.
