National Health Care

by Kathiann M. Kowalski
 

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Shelly McCoy
The topic of National Health Care is one that is debated politically on the national stage at least every four years, but it is a topic that very few average citizens understand. Part of the "Open for Debate" series, this book explains why America's health system is ailing and starts with our medical history to provide reasons to explain how we got into this mess and the grim prognosis for the future if we continue with the same system. Market-based reforms such as Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), tax reform, and a nationwide insurance market (meaning that individual states do not set requirements) and universal health care are just a few of the ideas explained and compared in the text. Although this topic is probably not of interest to most teenagers, it is an important one to explore with them in a health, social studies, or current topics class because chances are they will be caregivers for their parents and also have to worry about their own rising health costs. For students or teachers needing an in-depth resource on the national health care debates, this book provides a great deal of information with statistics and non-biased reporting of facts.
