Summary

As the population ages and medical research develops additional life-saving but expensive treatments, the concern over the rising costs of health insurance in America grows. Issues such as the perceived decline in overall quality of care, limited health care access for the poor and minorities, and the denial of treatments by insurance companies and health management organizations (HMOs) consistently make the news.

An in-depth overview, a reference resource, and a useful research guide, Patients' Rights in the Age of Managed Health Care explains in a clear and concise manner the chief issues in the health delivery field, the responses, the effects, and the future trends. It is an invaluable resource for all those involved in health care, including patients and their families, medical professionals, and politicians, as well as students, educators, journalists, and members of the public.

Coverage includes:

  • An extensive historical overview of America's health care system
  • Laws and court cases affecting health care
  • A chronology of medical, legislative, judicial, and public events that have affected health care
  • Biographical profiles of key individuals involved in the health care debate
  • A glossary of related medical, legal, and other terms
  • A guide to doing research on health care delivery issues
  • An extensive annotated bibliography of books, periodicals, on-line publications, and other sources of information on health care
  • An annotated list of organizations involved in the health care debate.
