Today, being employed is not a guarantee of health insurance coverage. Nearly 46 million Americans under age 65 do not have health insurance while many are under insured (National Coalition on Health Care, 2010). Dr. Uwe Reinhardt contends the number of uninsured is one of the three main problems with the health care in the United States. One of today’s most sought after speakers on health care systems and health reform, Dr.Reinhardt is back on Line One this week to discuss health care reform in the United States and where it stands today.
