A path to universal access

Hastings Center Report 38 (1):34-36 (2008)

Abstract
What balance of government and private institution activity might stand a reasonable chance of achieving universal access to basic health care in the United States? David De Grazia makes a strong case that single-payer national health insurance with managed competition in delivery is morally the preferred structure for universal access: it best achieves the combination of universal access, cost control, freedom of patient choice, and quality of care. If we account for the realities of American political and moral culture, however, is this the model for reform that people seriously committed to actually achieving universal access should be pushing?
