Americans across the country are demanding comprehensive health reform and cannot afford to wait any longer for Washington to act. Businesses and families are struggling as costs continue to skyrocket. More and more Americans find themselves uninsured. Those Americans fortunate enough to have health insurance often don’t get the quality care they need and deserve. The Costs of Inaction highlights the flaws in the health care system and demonstrates the cost of maintaining the status quo. Organized into three sections – Escalating Health Care Costs, Diminishing Access to Care and Persistent Gaps in Quality – the report shows how the current system has failed millions of Americans and why we must enact comprehensive health reform this year.
