Congress has seen a renewed interest in the market for private health insurance since the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). This book provides an overview of private-sector (as opposed to government-provided) health insurance. It serves as an introduction to health insurance from the point of view of many consumers under the age of 65. Furthermore, the book provides background information about modifying or building on the current health insurance system; discusses how understanding the potential impact of such proposals requires a working knowledge of how health insurance is provided, purchased, and regulated; and describes various ACA provisions that affect the private insurance market.

Statistics published by the U. S. Department of Commerce (1980) indicate that in 1977 we spent 8. 1% of our gross national product (GNP) on life, health, property-casualty, and other forms of insurance. An additional 5. 7% was used to pay the Social Security tax, which is another form of insurance premium, for a total of 14. 8% of the GNP. Although insurance had its historical origin in marine insurance, it has now developed into one of the major industries of the American economy and extends into many areas of economic activity. One area where growth has been particularly strong is the medical sector. Health insurance is a major institution in all industrialized countries. It became a government responsibility in 1883 when Bismarck intro- duced a compulsory program of health insurance for industrial workers in Germany. Programs for workers in various industrial and income categories soon followed in other European countries-Austria (1888), Hungary (1891), Norway (1909), Servia (1910), Great Britain (1911), and Russia and Romania (1912) (Rubinow, 1913:250). Programs in these countries were extended in subsequent years, and other countries in Europe followed with their own programs. Consequently, today most industrial countries have universal or near-universal health insurance coverage. In the United States the issue of national health insurance has been seriously debated since just prior to World War I, and polling data since the 1930s show that a substantial majority of the public has been supportive of such a program (Erskine, 1975).

First things first, this isn't a diet book; it's a simple guide to healthy eating. In other words, the following pages will not advise you to follow any radical changes in your eating habits. Instead, you will learn the basics of good nutrition and the many benefits that can result. Indeed, there is now a wealth of irrefutable evidence to suggest that good diet has a range of positive health consequences. Furthermore, there is also reasonable consensus amongst nutritionists as to what a 'good diet' for most people actually is. This book will therefore introduce you to some simple guidelines which, if you decide to follow them and commit to a positive new eating habit, will help you to: control your body weight and lose excess fat without dieting have more energy, better mood and concentration have a stronger immune system to fight infection keep your blood pressure and blood cholesterol levels within healthy ranges have a healthier heart and circulatory system with less chance of a heart attack or stroke reduce your risk of getting certain forms of cancer have a better sex life and improved fertility live longer and lead a more active life. There are lots more benefits, but that's a long enough list for now. The advice you're about to read is designed to be practical more than theoretical. Useful information has been condensed and divided into easy bite size form, so you can dip in and out when convenient, or use it for quick reference when shopping or buying your lunch. Expect a long-term healthy eating plan, not a short-term fix. Also, expect to contribute a little time and discipline yourself. There are many diet fads you can follow that will promise quick weight loss, but they all involve major dietary changes and can create a range of health problems as a result, including low energy levels, depression, unhealthy changes to hormone levels, reduced vitamin and mineral status, lowered metabolism, and so on. Unless the change in your eating habit is sustainable, you will, at some point, return to your old ways and your original problems of poor health and weight gain will return. So, while we won't be telling you to radically change what you eat, you will need to commit to eating healthily in the long term. Read on to find out how."
