ALEXANDRIA, Va., May 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Policymakers at both the state and federal levels are increasingly focusing on the uninsured and proposals that promise to achieve "universal coverage," in which everyone has comprehensive health insurance coverage. In this rush to provide everyone with coverage, they have forgotten the underlying goal -- providing everyone with access to health care. Today, the Council for Affordable Health Insurance released its new Issues & Answers "It's About Access to Health Care, Not Universal Coverage." Full text is available at http://www.cahi.org/cahi_contents/resources/pdf/n140UniversalAccessPDF.pdf. Founded in 1992, CAHI is a non-profit research and advocacy association whose mission is to develop and promote free market solutions to America's health care challenges.
