The Scenic Road to Nowhere: Reflections on the History of National Health Insurance in the United States

Edward D Berkowitz
Published Online: 2010-04-27 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2202/1540-8884.1350

This historical essay looks at the changing meaning of health insurance over time and explains how broad economic and political forces have created that meaning at any one time but that these forces interact with the contingencies of the moment to produce a particular outcome. That outcome in turn influences the subsequent development of health insurance.

Keywords: history; social welfare policy; health insurance
