/NO-CHARGE DAIL-UP PHOTO ACCOMPANIES THIS STORY/
 NEW YORK, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- As of this week, the public no longer has to rely on bootleg copies of the president's health plan. The complete text of the Clinton blueprint on health care reform will be published this week by Times Books. "The President's Health Security Plan," a 304-page paperback by the White House Domestic Policy Council, is priced at $8 and is available in bookstores this week.
 The document, which had been available for inspection only by key staff members on Capitol Hill, is for the first time being made available to the general public. It is an authoritative compilation of ideas embraced by the president and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton including malpractice reform, Medicare and Medicaid, worker's compensation and long-term care.
 "We are publishing the entire plan in the belief that the health care industry, Congress and the public will want to refer to this extraordinarily thoughtful and provocative plan as the need to understand the complicated issues of the health care crisis grows with each passing day," said Steve Wasserman, editorial director of Times Books.
 "The President's Health Security Plan" is accompanied by an introduction by Erik Eckholm of the New York Times. Eckholm is a key director of the Times' coverage of the health care issues, and is editor of "Solving America's Health Care Crisis: A Guide to Understanding the Greatest Threat to Your Family's Economic Security," to be published in October 1993 by Times Books.
