The July 2008 issue of Health Care News leads with Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue's signing of two measures intended to make high deductible health plans and Health Savings Accounts more affordable and available in the state's insurance market. Also on page 1:

  • Colorado Gov. Bill Ritter has signed a bill mandating that insurance companies develop low-cost health insurance plans and submit them to a state oversight body.
  • A study released by consulting firm McKinsey & Company estimates far fewer people travel for the purpose of receiving medical care than has been previously reported.
  • A new report suggests approximately one in four Americans who have no health coverage are eligible for government programs but not enrolled.

Also in this issue: the Massachusetts model, e-health information systems, insurance premiums, health care entrepreneurs, Britain, Medicaid, and more. Greg Scandlen, who directs Consumers for Health Care Choices at The Heartland Institute, reviews America's Health Care Crisis Solved by J. Patrick Rooney & Dan Perrin. The book, Scandlen, reports, "is mostly a guidebook for consumers to use in navigating a complex system that is generally stacked against them."
