The Healthy America Program: An Update and Additional Options

09.2019 / By Urban Institute

This report updates previous analysis of the coverage and health spending implications of Healthy America and analyzes two additional options: one without an individual requirement and one that would lead to universal coverage for all legal residents of the US. Healthy America is a hybrid reform approach to comprehensive health insurance reform that uses purchasing leverage to reduce health care prices while improving federal subsidies to provide reduced premium and cost-sharing options for many Americans.

The report finds combined reforms could bring the United States close to universal coverage while decreasing national health spending over time and are designed to limit health system disruption.
