America's Health Care Safety Net explains how competition and issues in today's health care marketplace are posing major challenges to continued access to care for America's poor and uninsured. At a time when policymakers and providers are urgently seeking guidance, this book suggests concrete strategies that are at our disposal for maintaining the viability of the safety net - suggestions that carry with them innovative approaches to building public attention, developing better tools for tracking the problem, and designing effective interventions.
This book provides a comprehensive assessment of how safety net providers are being challenged by and responding to a more cost-conscious, price-oriented, competitive health care market.
