Public Issues Forum: Paying for Health Care in America
The questions we must address are: How can we get the health care we require, in the face of rising costs? How can we pay for what we need?
This issue framing presents three approaches for deliberation:
Approach #1: Reduce the Threat of Financial Ruin
Proponents of this approach say we need to make health insurance that covers major medical expenses available to everyone.
Approach #2: Restrain Out-of-Control Costs
Health-care costs are too high for too many people. This approach holds that they should be reduced directly through price controls and other means.
Approach #3: Provide Coverage as a Right
Proponents of this approach say that health care coverage is something every citizen is entitled to.A hot-button issue, healthcare is on the minds of young and old alike.
