HGov Research: Sick Around America


sick-around-america
More than 2.5 million Americans lost their jobs last year, and along with their livelihood, their health insurance. As the economy continues to spiral, the new administration promises to deliver comprehensive health care reform. Sick Around America lays bare the flaws in our system and examines the critical choices Americans face in changing a system that all sides agree needs a fundamental overhaul.

Chapter 1: We Were Incredibly Lucky 
Mark Murray’s family medical crisis was fully covered by the health plan provided by employer Microsoft. Millions of others aren’t so fortunate.

Chapter 2: Stories of a Broken System 
Medical bills bankrupt some. Others lose health coverage just when they need it most. And some people must seek jobs just for the health benefits.

Chapter 3: More Pitfalls 
Unlike many large employers’ coverage, consumer-bought plans can be inadequate, unaffordable. Even worse, a policy suddenly can be rescinded.
