Recently it was proclaimed that, a new health care program is on the process of formulation by the Commonwealth Fund. It is expected that this program will help in the transformation of the entire health care scenario of the United States. With this, more number of people will be able to obtain health insurance coverage, diseases and health disorders will be kept under control through the implementation of health information technology, and this will also help in slowing down the rate of increase in health care spending. This article reports about this innovative health care proposal in details.

On February 19, 2009, a famous private health care group of United States planned for devising a new health insurance program for the people and the government controlled insurance exchange scheme, as a segment of the program to increase coverage and cut down health care expenses.

The biggest private health insurance researchers, The Commonwealth Fund declared about a complete program for transforming a health care policy coverage of this country, which is presently regarded as the planet's most costly health care system, but still holds up some other countries in essential degrees of quality.

They expect that the Obama's government and policy makers regard the proposals, as they proceed ahead in this year 2009, with initiatives for bringing a drastic transformation in the health care condition of the country.

The ideas supports a unique blend of private and public health insurance plans over the concept of a completely government controlled health care system.

Each resident of the United States will be in need to possess some sort of private or public health care policy. One preference will be the recent countrywide governmental health care plan for all people below the age of 65 years; the age in which one qualifies for Medicare.

It is anticipated by the health care group that above 40 million citizens will enroll for the new health insurance program in the beginning.

The government is expected to conduct an insurance exchange scheme same as that program, which was managed by the state health department of Massachusetts. This would provide people the choice of evaluating health insurance plans and selecting from amidst a host of private insurance providers, from whom they would prefer to purchase the plan from.

The program visualizes extensive implementation of health I.T. along with superior disease control initiatives and insurance compensation modifications that remunerates competence and castigates misuse.

The directors of the Commonwealth Fund remarked that their plan is structured to accomplish global health insurance coverage, alongside improving the standard of the health care condition of the country and managing expenses.

Dr, James Mongan, the CEO and the President of the Massachusstes-based Partners HealthCare System Inc, and the one who leaded the Commonwealth Fund committee, that was responsible for formulating the plan; remarked that their objective doesn't advocates deviating away from the mainstream private health insurance market.

The United States Census Bureau data displays that in the year 2007, 15% of the residents of the country were devoid of any health insurance coverage. This denotes about 45.7 million citizens of the nation. From that time till two years until now, just around 4 million citizens will be devoid of health insurance coverage under the recently devised health care plan.

As per a study conducted by the government that was brought out this January 2009 it was found that in the year 2007, the people residing in the U.S paid $2.2 trillion for their health care. This denotes 16.2% of America's GDP (Gross Domestic Product).

Expenditure on health care will go on increasing; however the frequency of this increment will be slower when compared with the present proposals that will be implemented within the next ten years from now onwards. As per the Commonwealth Fund, the newly devised health care proposal will minimize yearly expansion from an estimated 6.7% to about 5.5%, and will thus help in saving a collective sum of around $3 trillion, through the year 2020.
