(p.1) Introduction
The Ethics of Universal Health Insurance

Alex Rajczi

Oxford University Press

Most Americans see the need for a national health policy that guarantees reasonable access to health insurance for all citizens, but some worry that a universal health insurance system would be inefficient, create excessive fiscal risk, or demand too much of them, either by increasing their taxes or by rendering their own health insurance unaffordable. After describing these three objections and the role they play in health care debates, the introduction outlines the contents of each chapter. It concludes with some remarks about how data will be handled in the book’s later chapters.

Keywords:   universal health insurance, health policy, inefficient, fiscal risk, taxes, health insurance, health care debate, data
