Lives at risk: single-payer national health insurance around the world
Rowman & Littlefield, 2004 - Health & Fitness - 263 pages
Lives at Risk identifies 20 myths about health care as delivered in countries that have national health insurance. These myths have gained the status of fact in both the United States and abroad, even though the evidence shows a far different reality. The authors also explore the political and economic climate of the health care system and offer alternatives to the current health care public policies.
