About this title

Synopsis:

Public opinion polls, media coverage, legal disputes, and policy debates at all levels of government and in private industry - debates ranging from the health of the national economy to the health of state populations to the health of a single individual sickened by Ebola hemorrhagic fever - attest to the important place that individual health care and public health hold in the minds of the American public, policymakers, and lawmakers. Indeed, the range of topics covered by the legal disputes and policy debates is breathtaking. For example, how should finite financial resources be allocated between health care and public health? What kind of return (in terms of quality of individual care and the overall health of the population) should we expect from the staggering amount of money we collectively spend on health? Should individuals have a legal entitlement to health insurance? How should we attack extant health disparities based on race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status? What policies will best protect the privacy of personal health information in an increasingly electronic medical system? Should physician assistance in dying be promoted as a laudable social value? How prepared is the country for natural and man-made catastrophes, like pandemic influenza or bioterrorism attacks?
Essentials of Health Policy and Law, Third Edition provides students of public health, medicine, nursing, public policy, and health administration with answers to and analytic frameworks for these complex questions, including in-depth discussions of the essential policy and legal issues impacting and flowing out of the healthcare and public health systems and the way health policies and laws are formulated. Concise and straightforward, this textbook is an introduction to the seminal issues in U.S. health policy and law, with a particular focus on national health reform under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
The Third Edition is a thorough revision that offers updated information on the ACA, Medicaid, CHIP, Medicare, state health policy, public health preparedness, and health care quality. The Third Edition also offers:
· New chapter: The Social Determinants of Health and the Role of Law in Optimizing Health
· Updated and enhanced chapter on "The Art of Structuring and Writing a Health Policy Analysis"
· Updated Figures, Tables, and Discussion Questions throughout
· Navigate 2 Advantage Access - a mobile-ready package of online course materials including a comprehensive, interactive eBook, study tools, and graded assessments
