Book Description

This volume is a revised edition of The Institute for Contemporary Study's report on national health insurance. It includes an analysis of legislation currently before Congress; an examination of hos-pital cost increases and cost containment; an in-vestigation of the politics of the National Health Insurance which asks if any major interest group involved in health care wants increased competi-tion; new research on both the NHS in Britain and Canada's relatively recent experiments with full NHI; an update on public health care; a considera-tion of the relationship between health and health care; a discussion of the subsidy of health care; and an analysis of the market for medical care and the effects of an NHI on the market for physicians.
