OverviewIn this market-leading text, Phelps combines current economic thinking and research in health economics with real health policy problems. New to the heavily revised Third Edition is a chapter on Managed Care and additional coverage of pharmaceutical industries, as well as an appendix for review of the Math and Microeconomics concepts used in the book. The early chapters of Health Economics develop necessary methodological foundations supported with concrete empirical studies. Later chapters focus on major policy areas, such as the structure and effects of Medicare reform, competition and regulation in health care, and international comparisons of health care systems, building on the conceptual material developed earlier in the book. - A Microeconomics Appendix has been added to guide students through all the basics they need to know for their health economics course. This makes the book more accessible to non-majors and lower-level health courses. - All-new Chapter 11 gives students a full discussion of Managed Care today. - Coverage of health insurance is streamlined into a single chapter (Chapter 10), offering a clear and focused presentation of this complex issues. - Long-awaited revision of a well-respected text in undergraduate health economics. - Overhauled to reflect changes in insurance, the pharmaceutical industry, public policy changes, and more. Currency is critical in the ever-changing field of health.
