The American Nurses Association (ANA) believes the best way to achieve its overall health system goal – guaranteed, affordable, high-quality health care for all – is through the inclusion of a public health insurance plan option in any health care reform legislation. ANA is deeply disappointed to learn of the American Medical Association’s position that private health insurance alone should dictate coverage options for all who don’t qualify for existing public plans, such as Medicare, as described in the June 11, 2009, New York Times article, "Doctors’ Group Opposes Public Insurance Plan."
