Synopsis
As we begin the 21st century, health care policy remains a central part of the federalism debate. The rising cost of care, the growing recognition of the many millions of Americans who lack health insurance, and the innovation in state Medicaid programs in the 1980s with new ways of financing and delivering care give new urgency to the question of how to best divide public responsibilities between the federal government and the states. In this book, leading health policy scholars explore theories of intergovernmental relations that provide a useful framework for examining how to divide up the job of providing health care. They assess the capacity of the states to actually implement health care policy changes, and weigh the merits of alternative visions of the role of states and the federal government in health care policy.
