The Health Security Act (HSA) was an effort by the Clinton Administration to provide universal health care in the form of a comprehensive national health care bill which emphasized managed care and called for the creation of regional health care alliances. This series contains material which provides a detailed analysis of the Health Security Act. A chronological subseries within this file focuses on legislative strategies to enact the HSA, as well as efforts on the part of the Clinton Administration and its supporters to counter intense opposition to the legislation from opponents in Congress and powerful interest groups. This file also contains material which examines in detail the alternatives to the Health Security Act, particularly single-payer plans and a compromise proposal from a bipartisan group of moderates in Congress called the Mainstream Coalition. This series contains memoranda, correspondence, reports, press releases, briefing papers, statistical data, graphs, legislative drafts, publications, and news clippings related to the Health Security Act.
