Book Description:
Health care is clearly in transition - but to where? Managed or unmanaged care? HMO’s or not? Are insurance companies and hospitals the enemy of health care for their own patients? What about the 40,000,000 uninsured in America? Don’t ask the patients, for they have become the ping pong balls in the health care game. This book examines important issues in this ever-growing maze.
