Abstract

The framework for reaching near-universal coverage outlined in this paper combines tax credits for private insurance and public program expansions. It illustrates how a series of incremental steps could be phased in to achieve near-universal coverage. Hallmarks include creation of a Congressional Health Plan; use of the income tax system to provide tax credits and enroll uninsured people; creation of a state Family Health Insurance Program open to everyone below 150 percent of poverty; and creation of a Medicare Part E, open to the disabled and uninsured older adults. The paper provides coverage and cost estimates and identifies potential sources of revenue to finance coverage.
