Some brief overview of this book

A fresh and comprehensive exploration of how health care rationing decisions are made, this book offers not specific criteria for rationinglike age or quality of lifebut a comparative analysis of three alternative decision makers consumers paying out of pocket, government and insurance officials setting limits on treatments and coverage, and physicians making decisions at the bedside. Halls analysis reveals that none of these alternatives is uniformly superior, and, therefore, a mix of all three is inevitable. The author develops his analysis along three lines of reasoning political economics, ethics, and law.

The economic dimension addresses the practical feasibility of each method for making spending decisions. The ethical dimension discusses several theoriesprincipally classic liberalism, social contract theory, and communitarianismas well as concepts like autonomy and coercion. The legal dimension follows recent developments in legal doctrine such as informed consent, insurance coverage disputes, and the emerging direction of federal regulation.

Hall concludes that physician rationing at the bedside is far more promising than medical ethicists and the medical profession have traditionally allowed. The book contains no figures.
