About the Author:

Rashi Fein, Ph.D., is Professor of Medical Economics, Emeritus, at Harvard Medical School, and the author of Medical Care, Medical Costs: The Search for a Health Insurance Policy.

From Library Journal:

health/econ The fact that the American health care insurance system is in urgent need of reform is self-evident. Proposals designed to ensure not only efficiency in health care services delivery, but also equity in their distribution, abound. Given the general consensus that health care policy should be part of a broader social policy, it cannot be denied that competitive market alone cannot act as a control mechanism guaranteeing a right to health care. Fein (Economics of Medicine, Harvard) traces the historical evolution of private health insurance as well as Medicare and Medicaid. While critically examining all possible alternatives, he argues that a Universal Health Insurance Program would be the best solution. A topical book, recommended for academic and large public libraries.M. Balachandran, Univ. of Illinois Lib., Urbana-Champaign
