Overview

Rising costs and soaring insurance premiums have left millions of Americans uninsured, underinsured, or struggling with medical debt. Supporters of healthcare reform believe the United States should join other industrialized nations in guaranteeing insurance coverage to every citizen. Though healthcare is usually a benefit provided through one's employer, the recent economic crisis has many proposing blanket healthcare coverage for everyone in the United States. People disagree, however, about how to provide access while controlling costs and promoting high-quality services. Some say that free-market solutions are the answer, while others favor a larger role for government, including a single-payer national insurance program. Universal Healthcare explores this critical issue that affects the health of every U.S. citizen.

Each book in the Point/Counterpoint series offers all the statutes, legal opinions, and studies a student needs to structure a cohesive argument on a given controversial topic. Issues are presented from multiple points of view; sidebars cite laws, opinions, and court cases to aid in critical analysis; appendices help students conduct legal research; and all sources are fully documented.
