Insurance coverage--its availability, cost, and impact on the medical care that Americans receive--is at the center of the national debate on health care reform. In Falling through the Safety Net Joel Weissman and Arnold Epstein, the latter domestic policy advisor for health care to the Clinton administration, offer a timely look at how insurance status affects a person's health and use of health services--and explain why the current system is in desperate need of reform.
