Health Care Reform 101

It might be possible that you’re just as confused and unclear about health care reform as I am. In a world where information travels quickly and in large quantities, it’s difficult to feel anything but overwhelmed when it comes to the big issues.

Under our Tools and Research tab, a handy sheet filled with links has been created to help inform you about the ongoing health care reform debate. This American Life has put together a series explaining how the health care system works and why costs only keep going up in part one and takes a deeper look into the health insurance industry in part two.
