This book focuses on the process of competition in our private health insurance market and its effects on the cost of care and access to insurance coverage. Chapters discuss how to minimize the selection of insurers of only the best risks, the labor market effects of mandating benefits, why small employers do not buy heath insurance, and the difficulties of comparing administrative costs between Canada and the United States. The volume concludes with a look at the health policy reform debate by several members of Congress and experts.

Robert B. Helms is a resident scholar at AEI.
