Healthcare changes looming for all
Modern Healthcare

The issue: America’s healthcare system is unsustainable. It’s not one problem, but three combined: high cost, uneven quality and millions uninsured. Major changes will keep coming. Every family will be affected. Where they stand: President Barack Obama’s healthcare law will extend coverage to 30 million uninsured and keep the basic design of Medicare and Medicaid the same. It’s not clear how well his approach will control costs for taxpayers, families and businesses. Mitt Romney would repeal Obama’s healthcare overhaul; what parts he’d replace have yet to be spelled out.
