Comprehensive Health Planning legislation was signed into law by President Johnson on November 3, 1966. Since that time frequent attacks have been made on CHP agencies for an alleged lack of significant accomplishment. This article considers such criticisms in the light of the objectives of CHP legislation, the dimensions of the problems involved in effecting change in the American medical care system, and the provisions of the legislation itself. The role which planning for health care is likely to perform in the future is also examined.
