Part One examines how Congress has organized and equipped itself to make health policy. Individual chapters consider how committee jurisdictions, budgeting procedures, information, and oversight influence health policymaking. Part Two uses recent health policy episodes the 1988-89 adoption and repeal of Medicare catastrophic coverage and the 1993-94 failure to pass national health reform to generalize about how process shapes policy.
