Better healthcare needs the right people and appropriate implementation

Executive Summary

The US health insurance expansion legislation signed into law on 23 March 2010 extends coverage to more Americans and follows the legislation expanding drug coverage for seniors in December 2003 (Medicare Part D). Controversy surrounds the subject of who benefits, who pays, how healthcare is delivered and what proportion of the healthcare dollar is controlled by the government, employers and individuals. The US pharmaceutical industry has supported both the 2003 and 2010 legislations. The industry, in principle, has supported expanded coverage for several years.
