Churchill, Larry R.
Health Care Analysis: An International Journal of Health Care Philosophy and Policy 2005 June; 13(2): 137-146
The age-rationing debate of fifteen years ago will inevitably reemerge as health care costs escalate. All age-rationing proposals should be judged in light of the current system of rationing health care by price in the U.S., and the resulting pattern of excess and deprivation. Age-rationing should be rejected as public policy, but recognized as a personal virtue of stewardship among the elderly.
