Antidote by M.Gregg Bloche
Book DescriptionSoaring healthcare costs have put medical spending at the top of the national agenda and in the spotlight of the 2008 elections. Both the public and private spheres are struggling with this urgent problem. Medicare and Medicaid spending are straining federal and state budgets, private employers are abandoning coverage or shifting costs to workers and their families, and firms that provide generous coverage are risking their competitiveness in the global economy. Meanwhile, nearly 50 million uninsured Americans remain hostage to uncontrolled health costs, while the combustible combination of third-party payments and technological advances continues to fuel spending.Quality and value in health care provision are receiving increasing attention, but robust proposals to limit medical spending over the long term are not yet part of the health policy debate. "Antidote" addresses why past efforts to contain costs have failed and proposes a fresh set of solutions to America's medical cost conundrum. Anyone concerned about rising medical costs and health policy will benefit from this state-of-the-art volume written by a diverse group of leading experts.Contributors include Henry Aaron (Brookings Institution), Gerard Anderson (Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health), Julie Bynum (Dartmouth Medical School), Kalipso Chalkidou (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, Great Britain), Ceci Connelly (Washington Post), Richard Epstein (University of Chicago), Ruth Faden (Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics), Dana Goldman (RAND), Mark Hall (Wake Forest University), Patrick Healy (Brookings Institution), Bradley Herring (Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health), David Hyman (University of Illinois),Timothy Jost (Washington and Lee University), Jeanne Lambrew (University of Texas, LBJ School of Public Affairs),William Sage (University of Texas), Jonathan Skinner (Dartmouth College), Sean Tunis (Center for Medical Technology Policy), and DanielWikler (Harvard University School of Public Health).
