In the
United States, a significant number of the current population is uninsured.
Reducing that number is critical to maintaining a healthy population. The
federal government plays a large role in healthcare and sets the standards,
regulations, and policies. In most industries, market-based competition is the
primary incentive for sellers to maximize the quality of their product or
service and to limit the cost. This is true to a much more limited degree in
healthcare.
