'Medical-Related Financial Distress,' and Health Care Finance: A Reply to Professor Melissa Jacoby
Kansas Law Review (2007)

Abstract

Professor Jacoby's description of medical-related financial distress as a pervasive problem is not merely a throwaway line but rather a claim that raises important, even philosophical, questions. And her goal of mak[ing] meaningful inroads into the problems caused by structural limitations of health care finance commits her to a scholarly agenda much broader than the empirical and doctrinal aspects of debtor-creditor and health law. It is an agenda that confronts grand issues of political philosophy and economics.
