Health Care in America: In Perspective, in Reality

Abstract

The conditions that must be satisfied in order to implement a system of universal health care for the people of the United States are: (1) access to a basic package of health care services for all Americans irrespective of their economic or social status; (2) administrative streamlining that would reduce costs and reallocate more resources to medical care giving, while maintaining total expenditures to the current fourteen percent of the gross domestic product (GDP); and (3) free choice of physician and hospital.
