U.S. health care needs centralizing and organizing

Filed under:

Health care in the U.S. will most likely be the single largest issue in next year's presidential election outside the 'war on terror,' and experts are already preparing roadmaps of suggestions to feed the candidates.

Areas like more organized care and overall health emphasis (not expensive interventions like drugs) are being brought up, as well as that old bugaboo: ensuring everyone in this country who is a citizen receives access to health insurance.

The insurance undertaking alone will be a monumental effort in policymaking, but a major suggestion so far has been to combine the efforts of federal, state, employer and private coverage to provide some kind of universal coverage.
