  • Description
  • Details

This best-selling textbook remains the most concise and balanced introduction to the United States health care system. Providing an accessible overview of the basic components of the system, this latest edition is also entirely updated to address the health care reform bill of 2010 and subsequent changes to health care services, delivery, and financing.

Like its predecessors, Jonas' Introduction to the U.S. Health Care System includes an overview of health care personnel, hospitals and other institutions, the federal government, financing and payment mechanisms, and managed care. It has been updated to offer insights into the 2010 health care reform bill and its resulting political and medical fallout, and a new chapter on health care system trends and consequences has been added. All students of health care administration and policy, as well as practicing health care professionals seeking a clear and concise overview of our health care system, will benefit from this resource.
