Universal health insurance can be achieved, according to the four authors of this book, by reshaping government regulation and tax policy on health insurance. In their plan, every American would be required to buy insurance, and tax credits would be available. These credits and the deductible on each policy would vary according to family income. The cost of the tax credits would be financed by ending the present tax exemption for health insurance premiums paid by employers.

The authors also evaluate the other leading health insurance proposals, including the single-payer or Canadian proposal, the "play or pay" plans, managed competition, and other tax-credit or incremental insurance reform proposals.
