Review

"The book is sobering and pulls no punches as it describes the myriad strengths and weaknesses on both policy and health care…" (PsycCritiques, 09/19/2007)

Review

Praise for Prior Editions of Changing the U.S. Health Care System

"This superb book provides a thorough and authoritative overview of the complex U.S. health care system. There are excellent chapters on such diverse topics as policies to extend . . .coverage (a brief history of health insurance), measuring health care costs, pharmaceutical prices, evaluating the quality of care, and medicare reform. . . . The topics and chapters are so well conceived that the material remains highly informative and relevant despite [changes in the industry]. This outstanding, comprehensive resource on the U.S. health care system is sure to be of great value to students, educators, and scholars."
—Eugene C. Rich, M.D.(Creighton University Medical Center), in Doody Enterprises Book Review Service

"The authoritative book on the U.S.health care system. Any student, scholar, executive, or policymaker who wants to understand a particular phenomenon should consult it."
—Deborah A. Freund, vice chancellor and provost, professor of public administration, Syracuse University

"Under one cover can be found the basic data and research relevant to virtually all important health policy issues, as well sophisticated analytic material on current problems and their range of possible solutions."
—Steven A. Schroeder, M.D., president and CEO, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

3.0 out of 5 stars Many questions and issues, few answers... May 2, 2007
Format:Hardcover
As I work for a health insurance company, I felt that I would benefit from reading Changing the U.S. Health Care System: Key Issues in Health Services Policy and Management by Ronald M. Andersen, Thomas H. Rice, and Gerald F. Kominski. Unfortunately, it was not what I was expecting. I was hoping for opinions and options on reforming health care. What I found was numerous stats, a lot of issues, and not too many answers. Read more ›

1.0 out of 5 stars Never got the book.... October 1, 2010
By Debbie
Format:Hardcover
Unfortunately, I never received this book from the Storage Chest... maybe it's still in storage?! My card was charged $42.48... now I am "out" for that amount! When I went to track the order with the order #, it stated that no such order could be located. I tried 3 times to track it. I ordered the book on August 30, 2010 with an expected delivery date of September 22, 2010. I would like to be refunded. I have never had this problem before, and I hope that I don't in the future. Fortunately, I have been doing OK in my class without the book! (Going on line for certain chapters.)
