The health care system in the United States faces a deepening crisis. Although the United States spends more on health care than any other industrialized nation, its citizens are less healthy and less satisfied with their health care than those in countries that spend less. This article provides an overview of the current crisis in the health care system, examines recent proposed solutions to reform the system, and analyzes these proposals in light of the values of professional social work.
