The 6th edition of HEALTH ECONOMICS AND POLICY thoroughly demonstrates how microeconomic principles apply to health care delivery and its policies. The text explores the changing nature of health care, the social and political sides of issues, and the future of health care delivery and finance under the Affordable Care Act; the text also teaches students to analyze public policy from an economic perspective.
