A shared destiny : community effects of uninsurance by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 2,240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insurance inherently involves collective destinies among members of a community -- a sharing of the risk of loss from untoward events. This, the fourth report from the Institute of Medicine's Committee on the Consequences of Uninsurance, explores a mirror image of the communal fortunes of those who are insured: the implications for a community of people who share geography and health services when not all of them are insured. It highlights the critical question of what happens to the broader community when the health insurance risk pool is highly fragmented and exclusionary. The report identifies an array of potential societal consequences of uninsurance, beyond the well-known implications for individual persons, families, and uninsured persons as a group. It reviews data on the association between uninsurance levels and community-wide measures of access to care, economic and social conditions, and overall health status; its sources range from sophisticated commissioned studies on uninsurance, hospital services, and financial margins to case studies and anecdotes. The Committee on the Consequences of Uninsurance finds that the adverse effects of uninsurance on the uninsured and the associated financial strain have spillover effects on health care institutions and providers
Hidden costs, value lost : uninsurance in America by Committee on the Consequences of Uninsurance( )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book consolidates and builds on previous Committee work in order to develop estimates of the costs to our society of tolerating a large and shifting population who lack health insurance--more than 41 million in any single year. It takes the broadest societal view of the economic and social costs that our nation incurs as a result of our current health care financing policies--approaches that leaves tens of millions without coverage at any point in time and most adults under age 65 at risk over time of losing their coverage
Health insurance is a family matter by Institute of Medicine (U.S.)( )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 2,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Health Insurance is a Family Matter" is the third of a series of six reports on the problems of uninsurance in the United Sates and addresses the impact on the family of not having health insurance. The book demonstrates that having one or more uninsured members in a family can have adverse consequences for everyone in the household and that the financial, physical, and emotional well-being of all members of a family may be adversely affected if any family member lacks coverage. It concludes with the finding that uninsured children have worse access to and use fewer health care services than children with insurance, including important preventive services that can have beneficial long-term effects.
