    contraints on costs

    Please help me with the following in bold.

    1. Similarly, constraints on costs (and reimbursements for care), pursued in isolation, could compromise both access and quality.

    Is the above saying "measures for saving or reducing costs"?

    2. (1) employer and individual mandates, (2) expansion of existing public programs to cover the uninsured, (3) creation of new programs targeted at subsets of the uninsured...

    Does this refer to "small groups of uninsured"?

    Thank you.

    No, contraints denote restraints which have a nagative impact on the outcome of any thing (be it be Health Care, Scocial service etc) in terms of both quality and cost. These contraints can be social, political or resourse based.

    2. (1) employer and individual mandates, (2) expansion of existing public programs to cover the uninsured, (3) creation of new programs targeted at subsets of the uninsured..

    Yes, more or less so. Subset is a set within the entire/a large set. Here it means a small group within the entire group of uninsured.

    Thank you.
