The Kaiser Project on Incremental Health Reform
In November 1996, the Kaiser Family Foundation initiated a project to examine different strategies for expanding health insurance coverage to America’s growing uninsured population. The Foundation asked two leading health policy experts with experience in Democratic and Republican leadership roles, Judith Feder and Sheila Burke, to direct the project’s work in considering and evaluating the potential for, and likely impact of, alternative incremental reform options. This continuing effort has made important contributions to the public and policy dialogue about covering the uninsured. With new proposals emerging across political parties as we head into the 2000 election, the project’s analysis of tax-based reform options along with direct subsidy or government expansion options is directly relevant and useful to the debate.
