TOUCHSTONE BOOKS TO PUBLISH THE ONLY OFFICIAL TEXT OF THE WHITE HOUSE PLAN ON HEALTH CARE REFORM

 NEW YORK, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Touchstone Books, a trade paperback division of Simon & Schuster, will publish THE ONLY OFFICIAL text of the White House report on health care reform titled "HEALTH SECURITY: The President's Report to the American People" by the White House Domestic Policy Council with a letter from President Clinton and a Foreword by Hillary Rodham Clinton (11/4/93, $7.00, 89315-7).
 HEALTH SECURITY is written in easy to understand language accessible to every family. It answers the most important questions on every American's mind: what is the new plan and how will it effect me?
 Says Mrs. Clinton in the foreword, "Book after book has been written about the intricacies of the health care system and the difficulties of addressing these problems. But most of them have not been written for people like you and me -- people who may not be experts in health care policy but need and want to understand an issue so vital to our nation and our future."
 HEALTH SECURITY addresses what's wrong with our present system and clearly explains:
 -- principles of reform
 -- how the new system works
 -- the issues of security, including access to quality care and
 protecting older Americans
 -- how the system can be simplified
 -- Where savings can be made
 -- quality of services, freedom of choice regarding physicians,
 specific health plans, and long term care options
 -- responsibility issues, including controlling drug prices, medical
 malpractice, and paying for health security.
 It also includes an extensive appendix which lists existing government programs, charts and graphs on such areas as the uninsured, out of pocket costs and health expenditures as well as President Clinton's Speech to the Joint Session of Congress on September 22, 1993.
 HEALTH SECURITY is a dramatic and historic document of reform that will be introduced by a letter from President Clinton and contains a foreword by Hillary Rodham Clinton. Peppered throughout with stories from real Americans and anecdotes about innovative health plans that work across the nation, this is a report that lays out the President and First Lady's vision of how our health care system will change for generations to come.
