- We can order this
Consequently, health care reform has continuously been on the public and governmental agendas. It is out of this environment that several reform plans, including the 1993 Health Security Act, and the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), were launched. This book examines the ideological, social, cultural, economic, and several other factors that dictate the various measures and approaches employed to tackle the perceived problems. The book has an index, tables, charts and figures, lists of major terms, and review questions for each chapter. This book will appeal to students in Master of Health Administration (MHA), Master of Public Health (MPH), Master of Public Administration (MPA), Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), health certificate programs, and junior and senior level undergraduate students in political science, public administration, public health, and public policy. In addition to serving as a core text for health policy and administration classes, the book will serve as a supplementary text for graduate level courses.

From the reviews:
"This book is unique in the way it presents health policy in the context of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). ... The intended audience is healthcare professionals, undergraduate and graduate students, policy students, and others interested in health policy. ... There are many health policy books on the market. This one is unique because it is easy to read and understand and it addresses the controversies that are setting the stage for the next round of healthcare policy debates." (Carole Ann Kenner, Doody's Review Service, June, 2012)
