Abstract:

"One of the best ways to understand healthcare, in all its complexity, is from an economic perspective -- that is, from the perspective of all involved parties. Health Policy Issues: A Economic Perspective takes just such an approach. Renowned author Paul J. Feldstein describes the forces that press for change in healthcare and explains why the US health system has evolved to its current state. This book's 38 concise, issue- oriented chapters cover various aspects of the US health system, including cost of medical care, health insurance, Medicare and Medicaid, physician and nursing shortages, medical school admittance, malpractice reform perscription drugs, and more. Throughout, the book integrates information about the most significant health policy enacted in many years -- the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Discussion questions, key points, and further readings round out every chapter. Thoroughly revised and updated with current data and research findings, this seventh edition includes new and expanded content on the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act, physician malpractice reform, employee health benefits, generic drug shortages, political versus economic markets, and much more"--Publisher's description.
