Journal Looks at Lessons From California’s Failed Health Reform Efforts
The Health Affairs Web site includes three newÂ papers on California's failed health care reform efforts.
According to the journal, "the approaches taken in [California] -- and the differences between the California plan and the landmark health reform legislation enacted by Massachusetts in 2006 -- can provide important lessons for future state reform efforts and for President Obama and congressional leaders as they pursue federal health reform."
The papers are based on research supported by the California HealthCare Foundation.
Headlines and links for the papers are provided below.
