Book Description:
Health insurance provides protection against the possibility of financial loss due to high health care expenses. While health coverage continues to be mostly a private enterprise in the United States, government plays an increasingly significant role. This book presents important information on health insurance, including background details, coverage for seniors, COBRA coverage, tax issues, information for employers, Medicare, Medicaid, the State Children's Health Insurance Program and the roles of the government and industry in the health insurance puzzle.
