Interim Recommendations

Health Care That Works for All Americans

The Citizens’ Health Care Working Group has developed Interim Recommendations based on input received from participants in community meetings, respondents to our Web polls, citizens who wrote in to tell us their views, and presenters at public hearings. These recommendations outline a vision and a plan for achieving broad-based change in health care in America.
