Mexico nears universal healthcare goal



As the United States continues to debate the legality of President Obama's healthcare law, south of the border Mexico is preparing to celebrate a healthcare milestone of its own: universal coverage. Ten years ago, half of Mexico's population had no health insurance. Then the congress passed a law guaranteeing access to care, and a government insurance program called Seguro Popular was born. Mexico's newly appointed health minister, Salomón Chertorivski, used to run the Seguro Popular program and spoke with the NewsHour about the progress and challenges ahead.

People should never forget that real health depends how well you take care of yourself and not what health insurance you carry but I agree health insurance is important for every one. Search "Penny Health" or online for dollar a day insurance plans.
