    Description:

    Do more medical expenditures produce better health? In whose interest does the physician act? Does competition among hospitals raise or lower costs? This fifth edition of Health Policy Issues tackles these questions and provides short discussions on many other topics related to financing and delivery of health services. This book will help readers understand the economics underlying the issues and politics of healthcare. It stimulates critical thinking about issues involving physicians, nurses, health insurance, Medicare and Medicaid, competition, the increase of medical expenditures, prescription drugs and the pharmaceutical industry, and more. This edition includes thoroughly updated chapters, figures, and tables as well as a new chapter on comparative effectiveness research and much new information on healthcare reform. A summary of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 is included in the appendix.
