Authors : Khineche Soumeya .

Abstract

The present article will discuss and debate the issue of health care insurance in the United States of America during the two decades: the 1990’s and the onset of the 21st century. We will be starting with stating the main health care infrastructures, and the U.S. private health care insurance programs and plans. Then, we will be discussing the issue of the ones who beneficiated from the system and the ones who did not. Moreover, the national reforms and legislations that the United States’ Presidents aimed at achieving will also be tackled along with the contribution of the federal Constitution’s role in legislating proper laws making the nation responsible of its citizens. At last, the point of media coverage on health care insurance and reform will be reviewed as having largely impacted on the American public view that did not stop attempting to aim for a national health care insurance system and reform.
