Overview

The underlying theme is that the people who devised and run managed care are charged with making a profit for investors rather than providing health care. US scholars in philosophy, medicine, surgery, and public health explore some of the ethical issues that the mismatch has generated. Among them are rationing health care, the practice of the professionals, and moving from managed care to patient-managed care. The 11 papers are from a May 2001 conference in Kansas City.
