Abstract

National Health Insurance is now a vital topic awaiting action at the highest level of government. In one sense, the concept of National Health Insurance gets its validity from the earliest promise of the Declaration of Independence, which noted that all men possess the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Implicit within this promise, to many people, is the right to health, for without health, happiness is elusive, liberty is constrained, and life itself may be in peril.
