Example text

The average total cost of an employer-provided plan for a single person more than doubled from $1,992 in 1996 to $4,188 in 2006. Similarly, the average total cost of a family plan rose dramatically from $4,954 to $11,381 between 1996 and 2006. Economists generally believe that employees absorb most of these increased insurance costs in the form of lower wage increases. For example, unions have been willing to make wage concessions in return for continuing guarantees of health insurance coverage in collective bargaining agreements.

The number of uninsured individuals has begun to slowly rise again during the past decade after dipping slightly in the 1990s. Most analyses expect this trend to continue in the near term as employerprovided health insurance systems continue to strain under rising health care costs and premiums. The current state and federal budget problems reduce the possibility of further expansions of SCHIP and Medicaid and increase the likelihood of actual cuts in public health and MH/SA insurance coverage.

The de facto mental health system in the United States is not an organized system of care. Rather, it is comprised of numerous health and mental health delivery systems, as well as other systems (for example, the social welfare, justice, and educational systems) in which individuals with mental disorders commonly find themselves. It includes both public and private sector services, with each sector having its own agencies, funding streams, services, and operations. It provides acute and long-term mental health care in homes, communities, and institutional settings across the specialty mental health sector, the general medical/primary care sector, and the voluntary care sector.
