|1950 |In the 1950’s most American’s received their health coverage through private insurance|
| |markets (usually through their jobs). Many people invested in insurance on their own |
| |in the individual market. Since coverage from private companies is the largest surge |
| |of insurance for American’s, it is likely to be a central part of federal and state |
| |health reform efforts. Private health coverage is for people to protect themselves |
| |from potential extreme financial costs of medical care such as an injury, severe |
| |illness etc. |
|1965 |Medicare and Medicaid were previously known as “Health Care Financing Administration |
| |(HCFA)”. In 1965, the Social Security Act established both Medicare and Medicaid. |
