Concerns about the number of people who lack health insurance and about the high and rising costs of health insurance and health care have led to proposals that would substantially modify the health insurance system in this country. Because the Medicare program already provides nearly universal coverage to the elderly, those proposals generally focus on options for providing coverage to and reducing costs for the nonelderly population. Because most nonelderly people obtain their insurance coverage through an employer, proposals could affect that coverage in some way. They could, for example, provide new federal subsidies to pay some portion of health insurance premiums; impose mandates for individuals to purchase coverage or for employers to offer it; encourage alternatives to employment-based insurance or provide strong incentives to purchase coverage individually; or create new federally administered options for obtaining health insurance (including a single-payer system in which all citizens or residents would be offered coverage under Medicare).This report describes some of the key assumptions that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) would use in estimating the effects of key elements of such proposals on federal costs, insurance coverage, and other outcomes; the evidence on which those assumptions are based; and--if the evidence points to a range of possible effects rather than a precise prediction--the factors that would influence where a proposal falls within those ranges. In doing so, it also reviews many of the major issues that arise in designing such proposals. This document does not provide a comprehensive analysis of any specific proposal; rather, it identifies and discusses many of the critical factors that would affect estimates of various proposals. In accordance with CBO's mandate to provide objective and impartial analysis, the report makes no recommendations.

Testimony on the opportunities and challenges that the Congress faces in pursuing two major policy goals: (1) expanding health insurance coverage, so that more Americans receive appropriate health care without undue financial burden; and (2) making the health care system more efficient, so that it can continue to improve Americans¿ health but at a lower cost in both the public and private sectors. Both are complex endeavors in their own right, and interactions and trade-offs between them may arise.
