This comprehensive volume examines the `big business′, such as health care corporations and insurance companies, that has grown up around rehabilitation of the disabled in the United States, and the impact that this has had on care.
Albrecht discusses how the quality of care is influenced by income, income potential and insurance cover and traces how the financial growth in this industry has changed the nature of the care provided. He also presents a realistic assessment of the policy options and solutions available to a society that values equity in ensuring that quality rehabilitation services are equally available to all.
