Providing Health Care Benefits in Retirement

Synopsis

"This volume highlights many of the special health insurance problems facing the elderly and some of the solutions that the reform process must consider. The contributors to this book represent the diverse professions involved in providing health care security to older Americans: policymaking and academic economists, actuaries, statisticians, physicians, employee benefit plan sponsors, labor union representatives, attorneys, and health care policy specialists. Issues central to the debate are the elderly population's special risk of health problems and its precarious position as health reform proposals unfold. The evolving process of reforming our health care system must reflect the politics and economics of retiree health care coverage. No other book includes such a diverse cross-section of research and opinion about this extremely expensive and valuable benefit. Providing Health Care Benefits in Retirement will be of interest to students, scholars, and professionals in areas of human resources, economics, health insurance, and employee benefits."
