A majority of American doctors support the concept of national health insurance, according to a survey by researchers at Indiana University's Center for Health Policy and Professionalism Research. The survey findings represent a shift in thinking over the past five years. The survey found that 59 percent of physicians support "government legislation to establish national health insurance." A similar survey conducted in 2002 found that 49 percent of physicians supported the concept.
