Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

A citizen's guide to America's most debated policy-in-waiting



There are few issues as consequential in the lives of Americans as health care-and few issues more politically vexing. Every single American will interact with the health care system at some point in their lives, and most people will find that interaction less than satisfactory. And yet for every dollar spent in our economy, 19 cents go to health care. What are we paying for, exactly?



Health care policy is notoriously complex, but what Americans want is quite simple: good health care that's easy to use and doesn't break the bank. Polls show that as many as 70 percent of Americans want the government to provide universal health coverage to all Americans.



What's less clear is how to get there.



Medicare for All is the leading proposal to achieve to universal health coverage in America. But what is it exactly? How would it work? More importantly, is it practical or practicable?



This book goes beyond partisan talking points to offer a serious examination of how Medicare for All would transform the way we give, receive, and pay for healthcare in America.

Abdul El-Sayed, MD, is a former assistant professor of public health at Columbia University and a 2018 Democratic candidate for governor of Michigan.
