This paper explains that health care reform typically comes to the top of mind during every presidential campaign but never seems to evolve into a bi-partisan solution. However, several states and cities, the author relates, have attempted some form of health care. The paper concludes that tax increases and federal subsidies are the states' solution to funding these plans; nonetheless, without caps on insurance premiums, the insured and businesses are sure to have to carry the burden of most of the cost of universal health care.
From the Paper:"Indiana's proposed plan called "Power Accounts" provides coverage to some of the states lower income uninsured residents and encourages them to seek preventative care in order to maintain eligibility in the program. The "Power Account" requires that enrollees contribute 2 to 4.5 percent of their gross annual income and the state contribute the remainder to cover the $1,100 annual deductible. The plan is funded in part by the states cigarette tax and works similar to a health reimbursement account with the annual contributions rolling over year to year."
