The purpose of this project is to conduct a systematic assessment to compare and contrast the proposals that have been put forth for national health care reform in a way that is objective and relevant to policymakers' decisions. It is expected that this project will begin to reshape the debate over national health care reform and help narrow and target the range of options considered feasible. Funding will be used to: (1) expand on a study already begun with Foundation support to quantify and analyze long-term, economy-wide impact on government and business of converting from current health care system and tax structure to any of several forms of a national health care plan; (2) identify and synthesize other generic components included in the various proposals for national health care reform; (3) convene a series of focus groups on these specific components; and (4) disseminate the findings of these comparative analyses.
