THE SEVEN CRITICAL ISSUES 1. Should Everyone Be Guaranteed, by Federal Law, a Health Insurance Plan? For many years there has been a debate over whether or not access to health care is a right that should be guaranteed to every citizen. In the context of today's debate, this question has been more narrowly reframed as whether or not everyone should be guaranteed a health insurance plan by the federal government.

Comprehensive care Total, complete care and services provided beyond those offered by usual health insurance plans. Comprehensive care usually includes dental care, eye care, and mental health services. This term is associated with pre­ paid group health plans, HMOs, Indian Health Services, and military health services.

Comprehensive Benefits. -- At the other pole are those who advocate an expanded, more comprehensive benefit package that would increase coverage above most Americans' current benefit level. It would include more extensive coverage for outpatient drugs and many costly services, such as mental health care, alcohol and substance abuse treatment, and long-term care. It would also eliminate many copayments and deductibles that are now a standard part of most insurance policies. Those who favor this approach argue from the perspective of equity and access to needed services. Everyone gets access to services that, in the past, only wealthier people or those with extensive insurance coverage have been able to afford. The most comprehensive proposals recognize that, in an aging population, many will need improved insurance protection against long-term care costs, which are increasingly problematic for a growing segment of the population.


T60/Robert J. Blendon, Harvard School of Public Health, Journal of the American Medical Association, May 13, 1992; 267: 2509-2520 TITLE: Making the Critical Choices \\VT 93-94

Minimal Benefits. -- The minimal package generally provides protection against only very large medical expenses and a few routine services, such as preventive services for pregnant women and children. Such policies usually do not cover mental health care, drug or alcohol treatment, or long-term care and require patients to pay very high copayments and deductibles. As a result, the premium is much lower than for other policies. Proponents of this approach believe it is the only type of policy taxpayers and employers could afford to offer those now without insurance. It would provide adequate protection against most catastrophic costs -- the problem that is most economically threatening to uninsured families. In addition, its advocates believe that, if many of the routine costs of medical care are not insured, families will utilize less costly sources of health care and seek care less frequently for trivial medical problems.


T61/Robert J. Blendon, Harvard School of Public Health, Journal of the American Medical Association, May 13, 1992; 267: 2509-2520 TITLE: Making the Critical Choices \\VT 93-94

In setting a minimum level of health benefits, proposals include one of three levels of coverage: (1) a stripped down, minimal benefit policy; (2) a plan comparable to the average health insurance policy currently purchased; or (3) a more comprehensive package that includes such coverage as mental health care, drug or alcohol treatment, long-term care, and few if any deductibles and co-payments for individuals.


T62/RASHI FEIN, Prof. Medicine Harvard, 1986, MEDICAL CARE, MEDICAL COSTS, p.. 64 \\VT-JHH

Hospital insurance could hardly be defined as comprehensive health insurance. It certainly flew in the face of the reality of medical care: that there is a continuum of care and that, to a significant extent, hospital and outpatient care are substitutable.
