Covering Health Issues, 5th Edition - 2010 Update

Change Text Size:   Smaller Text Size   Larger Text Size   Default Text Size    

We are pleased to present a completely updated online edition of "Covering Health Issues," made possible by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Each of the 12 chapters has been revised to reflect the provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Coverage Act of 2010.

Topics remain the same -- health reform, health care costs, health care quality, employer-sponsored coverage, individual coverage, children's coverage, Medicare, Medicaid, long-term care, disparities, public health and mental health. Each chapter offers fast facts on the topic, background information, tips for reporters covering this topic, story ideas for reporters, experts with contact information and helpful websites. You will also find appendices on the congressional budget process, polls on health care issues, and covering health issues for TV and radio.

Although designed with reporters in mind, "Covering Health Issues" is useful for anyone looking for concise, balanced information about the topics presented.

We welcome your suggestions to make "Covering Health Issues" even better. You'll find blue "Suggest Edits" links throughout each chapter. Just click on the "Suggest Edit" link for the section you'd like to see revised, and your suggestion will be emailed to us. You can also email us at or call 202/789-2300.
