Beyond Health Insurance: Public Policy To Improve Health
Editors: Lorens Helmchen, Robert Kaestner, Anthony Lo Sasso
Much of the debate about health policy in the United States has focused on the availability of health insurance coverage and the relatively large number of individuals who are uninsured. While tackling the problem of the uninsured might improve access to and utilisation of healthcare, it would likely have little effect on the health of the population, as there is only a weak connection between health insurance coverage and health. Expanding health insurance coverage alone is unlikely to significantly improve the health of the population or narrow health disparities within the population, given that many of the major causes of poor health such as smoking, obesity, and physical inactivity are largely unaffected by health insurance.
War and Health Insurance Policy in Japan and the United States: World War II to Postwar Reconstruction
World War II forced extensive and comprehensive social and political changes on nations across the globe. This comparative examination of health insurance in the United States and Japan during and after the war explores how WWII shaped the healthcare systems of both countries. This book makes a strong case for treating total war as a central factor in understanding how the health insurance systems of the two nations grew, while bearing in mind the dual nature of government intervention – however slight – in healthcare.

Health Insurance Demand And Health Risk Management in Rural China Yuansheng Jiang
Good health is widely believed to be intimately associated with economic growth and development. A number of governments of developing countries have been combating poverty and boosting development through providing adequate access to healthcare. However, developing countries have been constrained by the limited governmental revenue. Thus, additional resources should be mobilised through appropriate instruments. Health insurance is a highly practical instrument. However, health insurance in rural areas is problematic and the demand for private health insurance and community-based health insurance scheme is inadequate. Taking China as an example, this study estimates the demand for health insurance and analyses the health risk management of rural households.
