The Future of Health Care Public Policy

Richard Teske –
May 22, 1999

In this 1999 document, the author writes that the following essay represents a discussion of the future themes facing policy makers, especially in the health care arena. According to the author, there are four principle areas that policy leaders must be prepared to address:

  • portability,
  • innovation,
  • risk, and
  • privacy.

Teske uses these themes to illustrate how we can reform Medicaid and develop a new regulatory paradigm in light of our constantly developing information age.
