It discusses the history of health insurance over the ages and subsequent development in the U.S. The different types of health insurance are explained, and the terminology commonly used in health insurance is defined and discussed. In addition, the Commercial health insurance that many employees and individuals see in the U.S. is addressed along with the Medicaid and Medicare programs.
