The health care reform system that is ultimately adopted, suggest the authors of this analysis, should rely on market forces, rather than government regulation, to reduce cost and improve quality in our health care delivery. A major portion of this paper compares the Health Security act (the Clinton proposal), the American Health Security Act (the McDermott bill), the Health Equity and Access Reform Today, HEART (the Chafee proposal), and the Managed Competition Act (the Cooper bill). The article focuses on the major areas of difference between these alternative proposals in the extent to which they would achieve true market-based reform, small group reform, universal coverage, and financing mechanisms.
