Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO summarized federal policy and management issues relating to health care reform.

GAO noted that: (1) the new administration faces the challenge of finding a better way to manage and finance the U.S. health care system while preserving high-quality innovative medical care; (2) the United States has the highest health care system costs in the industrialized world, but is not serving large portions of the population; (3) nearly 34 million Americans are uninsured and millions more are underinsured; (4) the United States needs to adopt features common to health care programs in other countries; and (5) a reformed U.S. system must build on the strengths of the nation's current health care system.
