Keywords: healthcare reform; healthcare eligibility; universal healthcare
Our purpose in this paper is to de-mystify issues of coverage expansion and local safety nets so there is adequate information for safety net stakeholders to develop consensus on the strongest possible proposal for expanded coverage. For this paper we interviewed urban and rural clinics, county health directors and local health plan leaders. The recommendations in this paper are ITUP's own; they are informed by our conversations, communications and feedback with our interviewees and interested members of our Board of Advisors.
