Abstract

About 46 million Americans under age sixty-five, including 9 million children, lack health insurance. They receive less preventive care when healthy and poorer care when sick than do the insured. Furthermore, the public ultimately shoulders much of the burden of paying for the medical treatment of the uninsured, either through higher taxes or higher health care costs.
