Disentitlement? The Threats Facing Our Public Health-Care Programs and a Rights-Based Response


No developed nation relies exclusively on the private sector to finance health care for citizens. This book begins by exploring the deficiencies in private health insurance that account for this. It then recounts the history and examines the legal character of America's public health care entitlements-Medicare, Medicaid, and tax subsidies for employment-related health benefits. Jost also examines the primary models for structuring health care entitlements in other countries-general taxation-funded national health insurance and social insurance-and considers what we can learn from these models.
