This chapter surveys the strategies, tactics, and results of US efforts to change health care policy. It begins by discussing the international health policy agenda in the mid-1990s. It identifies American intellectual trends at the time and how they related to international discourse. It then raises some doubts about how accurately the discourse in the United States and abroad represented practice. Next, it reviews what happened in the United States between 1996 and 2005. For a short time, “market” approaches seemed to be improving the rationality and performance of American health care. Yet that pattern soon reversed, and even when there were savings, they did not work in the way the rhetoric of the time suggested.

Keywords:   United States, health care policy, health care reform, market approaches, American health care
