The critical issue in health policy is the cost of health care, and its importance will only rise further with the changing demographics of the U.S. population.

At its peak, managed care led to a historic decrease in the rate of inflation in health care costs. Over the last five years, however, managed care has retreated significantly in favor of consumer-driven health care, in which individual patients are more exposed to the costs of care and thus choose more carefully which services to purchase.
