Abstract

This paper examines the failure to promote adequate preventive health care in the U.S. It focuses specifically on the preventive health services of screening, counseling, and immunization. It explores evidence on their effectiveness, as well as coverage under current private and public health insurance plans. It concludes with a proposal to expand health insurance coverage for preventive services and to reimburse physicians directly for preventive health services provided to patients.
