Health, Health Care and Health Economics
Perspectives on Distribution2259
The economics of health care has become an issue for both academics and policymakers in developed countries as the mounting costs of comprehensive care becomes a matter of concern. Insights into relationships and interactions among patients, physicians and hospitals, insurers and payers, and government regulators have drawn on the economic tools of price theory, cost-benefit analysis, theories of moral hazard and adverse selection, and the dynamics of the insurance market. This text offers an international perspective on the distribution of health care costs.
