about this item

The two-volume set reprints 47 articles previously published in American Economic Review, Quarterly Journal of Economics, Health Affairs, New England Journal of Medicine and other journals as far back as 1963. Volume one features research discussing possible health advantages to insurance coverage and medical care access as well as the financial difficulties experienced by the uninsured. The second volume considers problems of public health, the regulation of health care practice, and efforts to control the quality of medical services by holding providers legally accountable for damages. Topics include economic theories of medical licensure, the effectiveness of provider rankings, the obesity epidemic, the economics of infectious disease, gaming the liver transplant market, and malpractice insurance levels carried by physicians with paid claims.
