Making Work Pay II – Comprehensive Health Insurance for Low-Income Working Families

Source: Cynthia Perry, Linda J. Blumberg, Urban Institute, July 16, 2008

From the abstract:
Only 37 percent of adults in low-income working families had employer-sponsored health insurance and 42 percent had no coverage. Health care costs are also rapidly rising out of reach for even middle-income Americans. In this essay, Perry and Blumberg propose comprehensive reform that ensures coverage for everyone at every income level, while still encouraging work. Their proposals include state purchasing pools, individual mandates, and strategies for reducing health care costs.
