Abstract

In Reply.  —The Census Bureau makes every reasonable effort to count all persons living in the United States. The Health Insurance Association of America believes that all persons living legally in the United States should be able to locate a source of financing for their health care. However, the impact of illegal aliens on American health care is beyond the scope of my essay since, in the Health Insurance Association of America's estimation, information about the number, location, and health status of illegal aliens is highly unreliable.
