Health Policy: Understanding Our Choices from National Reform to Market Forces
Marilynn M. Rosenthal, Max Heirich
Westview Press, 1998 - Medical - 328 pages
Health Policy provides a rare glimpse into the frank exchanges that occur between proponents of quite different solutions to the dilemma of health care reform.During a critical period in U.S. health policy formation, from 1994 to 1996, advisors to the White House and members of Congress, economists, and health policy experts of varying political outlooks met together under the auspices of the University of Michigan’s FORUM on Health Policy. Their proposals were critiqued by leading scholars and health care experts from across the country. These discussions, which took place during the rewriting the Health Security Act proposed by the Clinton administration and the Republican takeover of Congress, shed new light on the nature of health care reform, the nature of the political process, and the realistic choices that now lie before us.
