Abstract Corporate cost-cutting, downsizing, temporary employment, and other business imperatives are making today's pricey health insurance either unavailable or unaffordable for 44 million Americans-of which 85 percent are in working families. With employers cutting back on offering insurance and with shrinking access to charity care as hospitals face their own funding shortfalls, where can America's uninsured turn for healthcare? In this program, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Hedrick Smith reports on how states such as California, Texas, and Tennessee are dealing with the desperate needs of the uninsured and their children.
