The failure of President Clinton's health reform plan in 1994 was followed
by multiple efforts at market-driven reform in the US health services system.
This book is about those efforts. It is edited by M. Gregg Bloche, MD, JD,
who received a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Investigator Award in Health
Services Research for 1997-2000 to support his research and writing on the
legal and regulatory governance of managed care organizations that made the
book possible. Several of the chapters originated as presentations to a conference
on the privatization of health care reform, sponsored by the Georgetown University
Andersen R. Health Care Privatization. JAMA. 2004;291(3):375. doi:10.1001/jama.291.3.375-a
