UNIVERSAL COVERAGE - BUILDING ON MEDICARE AND EMPLOYER FINANCING
Journal or Book Title
Universal coverage requires a strategy to sever the link between insurance coverage and employment in order to build a more stable insurance base. Universality also will require subsidies to make coverage affordable. Given these realities, the authors evaluate different financing proposals— employer and individual premium mandates and taxes—in terms of equity, affordability, and administrative and political criteria. An expansion of Medicare offers an insurance alternative that takes advantage of existing administrative structures of national scope.
