In the past decade, the United States has adopted policies that maximized the number of US citizens with health insurance coverage/services and then taken action to reverse that direction. What are the goals of the United States with regard to health insurance coverage for its citizens? What does our nation value with regard to health care?
The change in policy direction did not result from meaningful dialogue about our health policy goals. In the absence of that dialogue, policy arguments and political arguments are used interchangeably. Informed health policy requires informed discussion. The Michigan Health Policy Forum is dedicated to presenting informed discussion in the belief that a civil exchange of ideas from all sides of the political spectrum will help Forum attendees in understanding the concerns that shape health policy. This understanding is the basis of sustainable policy change in health care.
