MORE CHANCES TO COMPARE THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES’ HEALTH CARE PLANS

Posted in Uncategorized by raisingwomensvoices on October 23, 2008

Key Differences Spelled Out in Three Formats   
1. A new, consumer-friendly guide to Senator John McCain’s and Senator Barack Obama’s health care proposals lets women see what might happen to them under each plan. The report, Health Care Reform and the 2008 Election – A Guide for Women, takes a number of critical health policy issues for women [ http://www.brighamandwomens.org/ConnorsCenter/images/HealthCareReformFINALREPORT.pdf ] – including coverage, access , costs, and pre-existing conditions – and brings them to life through descriptive vignettes.

2. Presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain offer their uniquely different health care reform ideas to the readers of the New England Journal of Medicine [ http://content.nejm.org/cgi/content/short/359/15/1537?query=prevarrow ]
 
3. Listen to political scientist Jonathan Oberlander give a thoughtful and coherent comparison of their proposals on a late summer episode of NPR’s “Fresh Air.” [ http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=93975730 ]
