This text fills a void in social work literature by offering a comprehensive, in-depth overview of health and mental health care policy in the United States.

Health and Mental Health Care Policy provides a biopsychosocial perspective on health and mental health care and policy. It examines the legislative and political development of health and mental health care policy in the United States with a focus on the failure to achieve universal coverage and the development of employment-based insurance and managed care. The authors discuss the impact of poverty and inequality on health, examine the health status of disadvantaged and at-risk populations and consider implications for policy and practice.
