The White Paper on UHI

Under UHI, health insurance will be mandatory and every individual will have equal access to a standard basket (package) of primary and acute hospital services, including acute mental health services.  The system will be founded on principles of social solidarity, including financial protection, open enrolment, lifetime cover and Community Rating.  Everyone will have a choice between competing insurers, who will not be allowed to sell insurance that provides faster access to services covered by the UHI standard package.  They will be obliged to offer the same package of services to all.
