Thanks, Jennifer. I think we’re stuck with the name and acronym, but I think we can live with that. To me UHC is all about ensuring everyone—whether rich or poor—gets the health services they need, and don’t put their family at financial risk in paying for it. There’s equity here, there’s financial protection, and there’s the idea that the health services that people should end up getting should depend on what they need—not what they can afford, and not what suits the doctor. You can’t get at all that by looking at whether someone has an insurance card.
