Rabkin, Mitchell T.

A proposal is advanced for controlling health care costs through the use of economic incentives to reduce the use of diagnostic and treatment resources. The proposal is based on the concept of targeting specific economic incentives to each of the four principal parties involved in the delivery of acute care: primary care physicians, specialists, hospitals, and patients. Its purpose is to limit reasonably the options of patients in using the health care system without compromising the quality of care or the fundamental principle of free choice. (KIE abstract)
