Abstract : Providing health care to every American has become one of the most serious problems facing the nation. The number of individuals without-or with inadequate-health insurance is increasing, while the cost of providing care is growing. Chairmen John Dingell and Ron Wyden asked GAO to report on state initiatives to address the problems of access and affordability in the health care system and federal barriers that limit state options to achieve universal access to health care.
