Abstract

ABSTRACT

In the search for a universal, high quality, affordable health care system, Americans seek to identify and correct a series of current problems. In part one of this two-part series, we presented problems along with some suggested actions. This second part presents other health care systems in Europe and Canada. These different systems provide universal care and at a lower cost than in the United States. Further domestic proposals are presented from the Massachusetts plan and positions from US presidential candidates. These systems and proposals raise ideas about possible changes in the US health care system. Knowledge of these issues and other health care systems will help foster a meaningful dialog about changes in the US health care system.
