Health Care Overhaul Details

The 10-year, $856 billion health reform measure from the Senate Finance Committee would require most people to purchase insurance or pay a fine. It would prohibit insurance companies from charging more to people with more serious health problems.
Instead of a government-run insurance option, there would be a system of non-profit cooperatives. Only legal U.S. residents would be able to buy coverage through them.
Health plans in the exchanges could offer unrestricted coverage for abortions, provided that no funds from government subsidies are used to pay for them.
