dc.description.abstractThe twentieth century has witnessed an increased emphasis on the part of nations to provide protection for its workers. One form of protection that has come to be regarded as necessary and desirable is that of sickness insurance. This type of insurance would provide partial wage-loss compensation for specified periods to workers who cannot perform their regular work because of non-occupational illness or injury. It is the purpose of this paper to describe and evaluate from an economic viewpoint the state sickness insurance programs that have recently been legislated in the United States. State sickness insurance laws represent a relatively new field of legislation in the United States. In Europe, compulsory health insurance, which included not only compensation for wage-loss but medical care as well, was first legislated about half a century prior to sickness insurance legislation in the United States.
