Experts Debate Uninsured Causes, Cures
April 27-May 3 was Cover the Uninsured Week, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-sponsored initiative to raise awareness about the millions of Americans who lack health insurance coverage. The grassroots campaign included forums across the country at hospitals and community centers, seminars for small businesses, and information about enrolling in free or low-cost health plans.
Policy experts use the annual event to debate the extent of the problem and possible reasons millions lack coverage.
This is a laudable goal, as there is much misinformation about the uninsured.
