From press release:
As the country enters a national debate over health care reform, we need to remember that the U.S. health care system works well for the vast majority of people. Nevertheless, there are several problem areas, including the high cost of care and a large number of uninsured, that impede the ability of some people to get access to affordable health insurance and quality care. The public policy question is whether those problems can be adequately addressed by limited and targeted reforms, or does the country need to embark on a massive restructuring of the health care system?

Today, the Council for Affordable Health Insurance (CAHI) is releasing “Small Steps to Big Reform,” which argues that there are several targeted legislative changes, at both the state and federal levels, that would address the vast majority of the current problems and would go a long way in expanding health insurance coverage.
