Summary

Health and Health Care Policy provides an overview of the development of health policy in the United States, with a particular focus on the failure to achieve universal coverage. It also discusses the role of private and public insurance and examines uninsured populations. Finally, the text examines managed care in health and mental health and its impact on social work.

  • Provides statistical data and policy updates on key issues and trends in health care.
  • Provides an inclusive overview of the health status of at-risk groups, specifically people of color, women, children, and elderly adults, and discusses the need to improve conditions for all.
  • Introduces students to the study of epidemiology, which is central to public health efforts to improve the nation's health and reduce health disparities among different segments of the population.
  • Discusses the health care system today, including access to care, the uninsured population, utilization of services, managed care and behavioral managed care, Medicare, and Medicaid.
