Abstract

Calls for major reform of the health care delivery system have been sounded at both the state and federal level. However, given the lack of consensus on health care reform at a federal level, more than half of the states are developing initiatives for universal access to care. In 1989, the Minnesota legislature created the Health Care Access Commission to develop a blueprint for universal access in Minnesota. To assist this effort, we studied the extent and nature of uninsurance and underinsurance within the state. In this article we report the findings of that study and discuss how the findings were first used to develop recommendations for universal access legislation. We then describe the fate of the legislation. Finally, we describe the veto and the creation of Health Right, the recently enacted plan for health care reform bill in Minnesota. This plan simultaneously expands access to care and aims to contain health care costs.
