The health care reform debate in the United States raises many complex issues including those of coverage, accessibility, cost, accountability, and quality of health care. Underlying these policy considerations are issues regarding the status of health care as a constitutional or legal right. This book series analyzes the constitutional and legal issues pertaining to the right of health care and the power of Congress to enact and fund health care programs. Other topics discussed in this volume include health care price transparency; private health insurance and estimates of individuals with pre-existing conditions which range from 36 million to 122 million; expiration of the health coverage tax credit and how it will affect participants’ costs and coverage choices as health reform provisions are implemented; trends, vulnerabilities and recommendations in personal care services; and traditional versus benchmark benefits under medicaid.
