Descriptions Expansion of Publicly Funded Health Insurance in the United States
Expansion of Publicly Funded Health Insurance in the United States introduces the issues, policies, and future concerns of health care within the United States to scholars of social sciences. Through research and outreach projects with the Child Health Insurance Program, Jennie Jacobs Kronenfeld expresses concerns with the United States health care system with a focus on government regulations in conjunction with the health care of children and less affluent Americans. By looking at the precision in which the Child Health Insurance Program performed and examining case studies, Kronenfield is able to parallel government polices with regard to health insurance to the attack on the World Trade Center in 2001. This engaging volume is well suited to courses involving the study of social issues and the American government.
