Health Reform: Where Are We, Where Are We Going?

Approximately nine out of 10 Americans now have health insurance, more than at any other time in history, but millions remain uninsured, quality is uneven, costs are high and trending upward and Medicare’s insolvency is two years closer, now projected to be in 2028. So the challenge is, how can we make the best health care in the world accessible and affordable to those who need it while not reducing quality, raising costs, or imposing a regulatory burden that stifles innovation?
