New health care reform resources answer voters' questions

Thursday, Sep. 24, 2009

Two new resources are available to help compare various proposals and to separate myth from fact in the health care reform debate.

The Kaiser Family Foundation

The Senate Finance Committee is currently debating health care reform legislation. The Senate Finance Committee bill and the other two major Congressional health care bills are described in a side-by-side analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

The Kaiser Family Foundation is a nonprofit private operating foundation based in Menlo Park, California, dedicated to producing and communicating the best possible information, research, and analysis on health issues.

The Health Foundation

Do you have questions about health care reform? What is actually in the health care reform bills in Congress? How will these bills affect you? Is what you are hearing in the health care reform debate true, or just noise?

The Health Foundation has launched a new website that helps answer these questions and more. Content includes a discussion of what factors are driving the health care reform debate, local opinion about health care reform, and definitions of health care terms. An entire section called "Is What I Hear True?" separates myth from fact. In addition, the website invites readers to ask questions and share personal health care stories.
