There are big questions in the study of health care financing. Who pays? What does, or must, government pay for? What is the role of private funding? Is insurance based financing better than budgetary financing? Is insurance cover appropriate for primary care? Does insurance work better in tertiary care? etc. Policy makers need a proper understanding of these issues. In analysing the working of public insurance schemes, this very timely volume adds to our knowledge of health care financing and the need for continuous government engagement"". - Keshav Desiraju, Former Secretary, Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India.
