Can someone recommend inexpensive child indepenent health insurance?

I’ve recently became legal guardian of my 17yo sister. My company will not allow me to add my 17yo sister on my insurance. Can someone recommend inexpensive independent Child Health Insurance?

A company can not keep you from adding your dependents onto your health insurance. You do have to wait until they have an open enrollment period.

Health Insurance Is a Family Matter


Health Insurance Is a Family Matter


$3.95


Health Insurance is a Family Matter is the third of a series of six reports on the problems of uninsurance in the United Sates and addresses the impact on the family of not having health insurance. The book demonstrates that having one or more uninsured members in a family can have adverse consequences for everyone in the household and that the financial, physical, and emotional well-being of all members of a family may be adversely affected if any family member lacks coverage. It concludes with the finding that uninsured children have worse access to and use fewer health care services than children with insurance, including important preventive services that can have beneficial long-term effects.

America's Children: Health Insurance and Access to Care


America’s Children: Health Insurance and Access to Care


$5.93


Today, more than 11 million American children lack health insurance and the number increases every year. America’s Children is a comprehensive, easy-to-read analysis of the relationship between health insurance and access to care. The book addresses three broad questions: How is children’s health care currently financed? Does insurance equal access to care? How should the nation address the health needs of this vulnerable population? Topics explored include: — The changing role of Medicaid under managed care. — State-initiated and private sector children’s insurance programs. — Specific effects of insurance status on the care children receive. — The impact of chronic medical conditions and special health care needs. — The status of "safety net" health providers: community health centers, children’s hospitals, school-based health centers, and others. — Private-sector, employer-based health insurance: the changing patterns of coverage and tax policy options to increase coverage.

Cover Me: A Health Insurance Memoir


Cover Me: A Health Insurance Memoir


$3.95


Growing up in middle-class middle America, Sonya Huber viewed health care as did most of her peers: as an inconvenience or not at all. There were braces and cavities, medications and stitches, the family doctor and the local dentist. Finding herself without health insurance after college graduation, she didn’t worry. It was a temporary problem. Thirteen years and twenty-three jobs later, her view of the matter was quite different. Huber’s irreverent and affecting memoir of navigating the nation’s health-care system brings an awful and necessary dose of reality to the political debates and propaganda surrounding health-care reform. "I look like any other upwardly mobile hipster," Huber says. "I carry a messenger bag, a few master’s degrees, and a toddler raised on organic milk." What’s not evident, however, is that she is a veteran of Medicaid and WIC, the federal government’s supplemental nutrition program for women, infants, and children. In "Cover Me," Huber tells a story that is at once all too familiar and rarely told: of being pushed to the edge by worry; of the adamant belief that better care was out there; of taking one mind-numbing job after another in pursuit of health insurance, only to find herself scrounging through the trash heap of our nation’s health-care system for tips and tricks that might mean the difference between life and death.

The reports were prepared by the Congressional Research Service of the Library of Congress between 2006 and 2007. Neither Ewing’s credentials nor criteria used in the selection of the materials for inclusion in the text are stated, and there is neither discussion nor summarization of the material by the editor. However, the text does assemble excerpts of several source documents in one publication for readers working in fields concerned with child health insurance provisions.

Life and Health Insurance


$147.65


This current, accurate and detailed industry guide for financial service professionals examines life and health insurance "simultaneously from the viewpoints of the buyer, the advisor, and the insurer"–providing a comprehensive and unbiased treatise on individual and group life; a forthright appraisal of life and health insurance industry products with careful consideration of the environment; and a complete examination of life insurance company operations and regulation. Bases financial treatment of life insured operations on modern financial theory, and devotes entire chapters to the economics of life and health insurance; individual life and health insurance policies; life and health insurance evaluation; the uses of life and health insurance in personal and business planning; government and employee benefit plans; and the management, operation, and regulation of life insurance companies. Offers a strong global orientation, supporting fundamental concepts with an extensive integration of economic and financial theory and international comparisons, and examines how today’s health insurance products fit into a broad framework from a contractual, cost, and performance viewpoints. New chapters on the tax treatment of life and health insurance address such areas as estate planning, retirement planning, and the business uses of life and health insurance. For financial planners, salesmen, actuaries, investment managers, attorneys, CPAs, and other financial service professionals.

Health Care Financing and Insurance


Health Care Financing and Insurance


$119


As a contribution to the search for suitable and sustainable solutions to finance rising medical care expenditures, the book proposes a typology of healthcare financing and insurance schemes, based on the dimensions of basic vs. supplementary services and mandatory vs. voluntary coverage, to analyse the design and the complex interactions between various financing and insurance arrangements in several OECD countries. This study provides a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the financial and organisational structures of different countries’ healthcare financing and insurance schemes. Its main contributions are the development of a novel and rigorous theoretical framework analysing the economic rationales for the optimal design of healthcare financing and insurance schemes, and an empirical and institutional analysis investigating the consequences for efficiency and affordability of the complex interactions between basic and supplementary sources of financing.

Bonus Options in Health Insurance


Bonus Options in Health Insurance


$209


Confronted with the continuing cost expansion in the health care sector, policy makers face a dilemma: limiting moral hazard in medical care requires that consumers participate in the cost, yet copayment is strongly resisted by today’s socially insured. Thus, the experiences of three private German health insurers will be of interest to physicians, social scientists, and policy makers. Insurer A writes conventional plans with deductibles and coinsurance; B pays back three-monthly premiums as a fixed rebate for no claims; while C runs an experience-rated bonus system starting with a rebate of three-monthly premiums for the first year without a claim, reaching a maximum of five after three years. While both rebates and bonuses are quite popular among insureds, this study shows that bonus options are particularly effective in limiting the demand for ambulatory and even hospital care. But what about adverse effects on health caused by the desire to save one’s bonus? On this issue, there is some surprising evidence.

Focusing on a wide range of areas, such as AIDS, genetic engineering, screening and underwriting, new disability legislation and the ethics of private and public health insurance, this comprehensive and sometimes controversial book provides an essential survey of the key issues in health insurance. Divided into two parts, the first considers the ethics of underwriting, risk assessment and the acceptance and refusal of insurance risk by insurers. Discussing the unjust treatment of high-risk applicants, the authors identify sources of unfairness to both parties of the insurance contract, indicating how reasonable trade-offs can be made. The second part considers the argument for a mix of public and private insurance for acute and long-term care, offering recommendations for changes in the balance of social insurance, and discussing the shift toward long-term contracts in private health care and pension insurance.

War and Health Insurance Policy in Japan and the United States: World War II to Postwar Reconstruction


War and Health Insurance Policy in Japan and the United States: World War II to Postwar Reconstruction


$10.87


World War II forced extensive and comprehensive social and political changes on nations across the globe. This comparative examination of health insurance in the United States and Japan during and after the war explores how WWII shaped the health care systems of both countries. Takakazu Yamagishi discusses the effect of total war on the development of health insurance in both countries and compares the two using four measures: political structure, the power of interest groups, the existing political culture, and policy feedback. During the war, the U.S. and Japanese governments realized that healthy soldiers, workers, mothers, and children were vital to national survival. While both countries adopted new, expansive national insurance policies as part of their WWII mobilization efforts, they approached doing so in different manners and achieved near opposite results. In the U.S., private insurance became the predominant means of insuring people, save for a few government-run programs. Japan, meanwhile, created a near-universal public insurance system. After the war, the nations further consolidated their respective insurance policy. Yamagishi argues that these disparate outcomes were the result of each nation’s war experience. He looks closely at postwar Japan and investigates how struggles between the American occupation authority and U.S. domestic forces, such as the American Medical Association, actually helped solidify the country’s existing health insurance system. Original and tightly argued, this volume makes a strong case for treating total war as a central factor in understanding how the health insurance systems of the two nations grew while bearing in mind the dual nature of government intervention — however slight — in health care. Those interested in debates about health care in industrialized countries and scholars of comparative political development especially will appreciate and learn from Yamagishi’s study.

Social Functions and Economic Aspects of Health Insurance


Social Functions and Economic Aspects of Health Insurance


$159


Statistics published by the U. S. Department of Commerce (1980) indicate that in 1977 we spent 8. 1% of our gross national product (GNP) on life, health, property-casualty, and other forms of insurance. An additional 5. 7% was used to pay the Social Security tax, which is another form of insurance premium, for a total of 14. 8% of the GNP. \ Although insurance had its historical origin in marine insurance, it has now developed into one of the major industries of the American economy and extends into many areas of economic activity. One area where growth has been particularly strong is the medical sector. Health insurance is a major institution in all industrialized countries. It became a government responsibility in 1883 when Bismarck intro­ duced a compulsory program of health insurance for industrial workers in Germany. Programs for workers in various industrial and income categories soon followed in other European countries-Austria (1888), Hungary (1891), Norway (1909), Servia (1910), Great Britain (1911), and Russia and Romania (1912) (Rubinow, 1913:250). Programs in these countries were extended in subsequent years, and other countries in Europe followed with their own programs. Consequently, today most industrial countries have universal or near-universal health insurance coverage. In the United States the issue of national health insurance has been seriously debated since just prior to World War I, and polling data since the 1930s show that a substantial majority of the public has been supportive of such a program (Erskine, 1975).

Government-Sponsored Health Insurance in India: Are You Covered?


Government-Sponsored Health Insurance in India: Are You Covered?


$36.57


This book presents research findings on India ‘s major central and state government-sponsored health insurance schemes (GSHISs). The analysis centers on the GSHISs launched since 2007. These schemes targeted poor populations, aiming to provide financial protection against catastrophic health shocks, defined in terms of inpatient care. Focus is on two lines of inquiry. The first involves institutional and operational opportunities and challenges regarding schemes design features, governance arrangements, financial flows, cost-containment mechanisms, underlying stakeholder incentives, information asymmetries, and potential for impact on financial protection and on access to care and use by targeted beneficiaries. The second entails big picture questions on the future configuration of India ‘s health financing and delivery systems that have surfaced, due in part to the appearance of a new wave of GSHISs. In addition to gains in population coverage, reaching about 185 million low-income beneficiaries by 2010, the new crop of schemes introduced a demand-side approach to public financing while embracing several innovation features, at least for the Indian context. These include: defined entitlements, separation of purchasing from financing, patient choice of providers, impressive use of information and communication technology and engagement with the private sector in the areas of insurance, administration and provision. Strong political interest in the schemes is also evident, especially at the state level and is a driver of increased public expenditures for health. The schemes face a number of operational challenges that have emerged during implementation and are examined in the book. They will need to strengthen institutional and governance arrangements, purchasing and contracting capacities, monitoring systems, and cost containment mechanisms. They need to use their financial leverage to improve the quality of network providers. Beneficiaries also appear to have insufficient information on enrolment, benefits and providers. The book recommends a series of corrective measures to address these shortcomings. The book outlines a pragmatic pathway toward achieving universal coverage that takes as a starting point the current configuration of health financing and delivery arrangements in India, recent trends in government health financing as well as innovations and lessons from the recent GSHISs analyzed in this book. The book concludes with a review of issues for further research.

Using Taxes to Reform Health Insurance: Pitfalls and Promises


Using Taxes to Reform Health Insurance: Pitfalls and Promises


$11.21


Few people realize that one of the nation’s largest health programs runs through the tax system. Reformers of all stripes propose to modify current tax rules as part of larger programs to increase coverage and control costs. Is the current system working? Will tax-based reforms achieve their goals? Several of the nation’s foremost experts on taxation and health policy address these questions in Using Taxes to Reform Health Insurance, a joint product of the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center and the American Tax Policy Institute. Led by respected economists Henry Aaron of the Brookings Institution and Leonard Burman of the Urban Institute, contributors examine the role taxes currently play, the likely effects of recently introduced health savings accounts, the challenges of administering major subsidies for health insurance through the tax system, and options for using the tax system to expand health insurance coverage. No taxpayer or consumer of health care services can afford to ignore these issues.

The Impact of Health Insurance in Low- And Middle-Income Countries


The Impact of Health Insurance in Low- And Middle-Income Countries


$28.56


Over the past twenty years, many low- and middle- income countries have experimented with health insurance options. While their plans have varied widely in scale and ambition, their goals are the same: to make health services more affordable through the use of public subsidies while also moving care providers partially or fully into competitive markets. Until now, however, we have known little about the actual effects of these policy changes. Understanding the impact of health insurance-based care is key to the public policy debate of whether to extend insurance to low-income populations and if so, how to do it or to serve them through other means. Using recent household data, this new book assesses the impact of insurance programs in China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ghana, Indonesia, Namibia, and Peru. These nations are betting that insurance-based health care financing can increase the accessibility of services, improve providers’ productivity, and change the population’s health care use patterns, mirroring the development of health systems in most OECD countries. The contributors also discuss potential design improvements that could increase impact. They provide insights on how to evaluate health insurance reforms using existing data and contribute to a robust knowledge base to guide policy as other countries tackle the health insurance challenge.

Health Care Financing and Insurance: Options for Design


Health Care Financing and Insurance: Options for Design


$121.78


As a contribution to the search for suitable and sustainable solutions to finance rising medical care expenditures, the book proposes a typology of healthcare financing and insurance schemes, based on the dimensions of basic vs. supplementary services and mandatory vs. voluntary coverage, to analyse the design and the complex interactions between various financing and insurance arrangements in several OECD countries. This study provides a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the financial and organisational structures of different countries’ healthcare financing and insurance schemes. Its main contributions are the development of a novel and rigorous theoretical framework analysing the economic rationales for the optimal design of healthcare financing and insurance schemes, and an empirical and institutional analysis investigating the consequences for efficiency and affordability of the complex interactions between basic and supplementary sources of financing.

Every day we are exposed to toxins and toxicants that can impact our health.  Yet we rarely teach elementary and secondary students about these exposures and how they can reduce their risk to them.  In this book we highlight activities and curriculum developed at nine universities in the United States from a grant funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.  Our goal is to extend these lessons to a global audience and for classroom teachers of all subjects and age levels to include environmental health in their teaching.  ‘An invaluable tool for equipping informed citizens to think about the environment and its human impacts –both the science, and equally important, the social and ethical dimensions’ , Howard Frumkin, M.D., Dr. P.H., Dean, School of Public Health, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA

Health Benefits at Work: An Economic and Political Analysis of Employment-Based Health Insurance


Health Benefits at Work: An Economic and Political Analysis of Employment-Based Health Insurance


$5.01


The majority of Americans receive their health insurance for themselves and their families through their job. The employee pays a portion of the premium but the employer chooses the type and amount of coverage offered as well as administers the plan. This book addresses the question: Who really pays for employer-arranged health insurance? Are premiums paid from company profits or do employees bear the cost through lower wages? Pauly suggests that this confusion has complicated the debate on public policy and needs to be alleviated. This work first shows how views taken by business and political leaders during the Clinton health reform proposal debate were affected by this confusion and did not follow the economic view. It then provides a novel, intuitive, but comprehensive outline of the economic theory that bears on this question. Empirical evidence consistent with the economic view is summarized, and the implications of the view for some important issues in health policy and in practical health benefits management are discussed in detail. "Health Benefits at Work" explores the political economy of health policy when the stakeholders have an uncertain and possibly incorrect understanding of their actual interests. For the benefits specialist, it provides an accessible treatment of the complex and often counterintuitive economics of health benefits. This will appeal to the health policy community as well as economists and anyone concerned with issues surrounding health insurance in employment settings. "This book is refreshing . . . clean and intuitive; the logic devastating." –Michael A. Morrissey Mark V. Pauly is Professor of Health Care Systems and Insurance and RiskManagement, The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.

Since the late 1908s many US states have sought to incrementally reform their health insurance markets. The intent of such reform has been quite straightforward: to ensure access to affordable health insurance by addressing insurer practices perceived to be exclusionary. In the light of this, a compelling public policy issue is whether these efforts to address disparities in the population’s access to health insurance have been successful. This volume provides a critical assessment of the current state of knowledge on insurance market reforms that is accessible of the current state of knowledge on insurance market reforms that is accessible to both policymakers and reserachers.

Women with AIDS and Their Children


Women with AIDS and Their Children


$66.7


Health care policy and proposals for national health care reform have become some of the most contentious political issues of the decade. Garland Publishing announces a new series addressing the most significant issues in the area of health care policy and the business of health care in the United States. books in this multidisciplinary series will include studies of health care practice, the health care business, the implications of multicultural perspectives on health care for public policy, the impact of insurance on health care, and debates over national health care policy, including health care reform. This collection of timely works will offer significant scholarly perspectives on one of the most important issues in public policy. Women, especially African American and Latina women, comprise the fastest-growing group of people with AIDS in the United States. Most live in areas where poverty and crime are prevalent. The vertical transmission of HIV+/AIDS, in which transmission occurs in utero, is expected to become a leading cause of childhood death in the next decade. Most research on women with AIDS has ignored the psychological effects of the disease as associated with vertical transmission. Through interviews of women who are HIV+ or have AIDS, this book examines the women’s reactions to AIDS and their relationships with their children as they cope with the disease. The findings indicate that most women with AIDS live in isolation and fear of disclosure. Psychological factors were found to be related to the progression of the disease, available support, and the existance of a reason to live. Maternal attachment is intensified with children with AIDS, or children whosecondition is uncertain. Women reported that they neglected themselves to care for their children, but that AIDS-related symptoms frequently prevented them from providing optimal care. Mothers looked to their healthy children for assistance with household tasks, childcare, and emotional support.

One thousand unselected patients with bronchial asthma have been followed up for an average period of 11 years, with extremes of 33 years and three years. The average period from the first symptoms to the date of follow-up was 20.6 years in the 562 males and 22.3 years in the 438 females, with extremes of 72 years and three years. Since throughout the analysis no differences were found between the sexes, they have been grouped together. Terms used, such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, childhood bronchitis, age of onset, etc., have been carefully defined, as have the descriptions of intermittent and continuous asthma. The present state of the patients has been classified as A (good), B (fair), C (poor), and D (dead). Early age of onset (before 16) and intermittent asthma were associated and had a more favourable prognosis, while the childhood bronchitic had a better outlook than the adult bronchitic. Intermittent and continuous asthma have been compared. The incidence of bronchitis initially was higher in the continuous group, and the tendency to develop bronchitis over the years (present in all asthmatics) was also greater in the continuous group. Those with bronchitis were in much poorer health on follow-up than those without.

The Regulatory Economics of Title Insurance


The Regulatory Economics of Title Insurance


$81.23


Title insurance is central to the health of the home mortgage market and the commerical real estate business, and its regulation has a profound impact on the prices that consumers pay for title insurance and the kinds of coverages that are available. Dr. Lipshutz provides a concise but comprehensive overview of the key economic policy issues that arise in regulating this small but critical segment of the insurance industry. This is the first book to examine title insurance from a primarily economic viewpoint and contains much information on the operations of the industry that is available nowhere else. The book is particularly timely because title insurance regulation is currently under intensive study by a number of state insurance departments and by the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.

Fundamentals of Risk and Insurance


Fundamentals of Risk and Insurance


$3.95


This consumer-oriented textbook addresses the principles of risk management without skimping on the discussion of insurance. It summarizes the nature of pure risk on the individual and on society and illustrates how insurance can be used to deal with the problems posed by such risk. Mirroring the diverse experience of its authors, the text is equally effective in presenting the principles of insurance theory and offering how-to advice to students. Throughout, the main emphasis is on the insurance product and the use of insurance within the risk management framework. The traditional fields of life insurance, health insurance, property and liability insurance, and social insurance are treated in terms of their relationship to the wide range of insurable risks to which the individual and the business firm are exposed.

Risk Management and Insurance


Risk Management and Insurance


$88.08


For many years, introductory insurance textbooks presented insurance as a subject based in contracts. Slowly, the course has moved toward a consumer orientation, providing students with a broad, descriptive survey of the insurance field, covering topics such as legal aspects, life and health, and property and liability. Over the past 10 years, textbooks began to promote, and to a limited degree, incorporate a stronger business risk management component while maintaining a consumer orientation. Harrington/Niehaus’ Risk Management and Insurance 2e is written to take the next step offering the essential aspects of insurance contracts and the insurance industry while providing a substantially more conceptual analysis and attention to business risk management and public policy issues that exists in current texts.

Public Insurance and Private Markets


Public Insurance and Private Markets


$70.02


As America debates the merits of government-provided health insurance, it is important to note that the U.S. government is already the largest insurance provider in the world. For decades, it has used taxpayer funds to support the world’s largest health care insurance programs (Medicare and Medicaid) as well as the biggest pension and disability insurance system (Social Security). The recent economic crisis has prompted the government to dramatically increase its insurance role by assuming large equity positions in private firms and bailing out troubled mortgages buyers and sellers. Do these public insurance programs improve social welfare? Or does government intervention risk moral hazard and result in inefficient programs that would be better handled by the private sector? In Public Insurance and Private Markets, leading economists critically examine the government’s role in insuring against pension fund shortfalls, crop losses, property damage from floods and other natural catastrophes, bank failure, and terrorism. Jeffrey R. Brown and his coauthors argue that government intervention must always be economically justified; that risk adjusted premiums are essential; that the true taxpayer burden for public insurance programs must be recognized; and that private markets are capable of transferring risk without government intervention. Poorly designed government insurance programs result in misallocation of resources, excessive risk-taking, and potentially enormous burdens on current and future taxpayers. Public Insurance and Private Markets offers market-based guidelines for the proper scope of government intervention and the design of public insurance programs_guidelines that will benefit the U.S. economy and protect the resources of future generations.

Social Policies for Children


Social Policies for Children


$5.21


Successful social policies for children are critical to America’s future. Yet the status of children in America suggests that the nation’s policies may not be serving them well. Infant and child mortality rates in the U.S. remain high compared to other western industrialized nations; child poverty rates have worsened in the past decade; poor health care, child abuse, and inadequate schooling and child care persist. This book presents a new set of social policies designed to alleviate these problems and to help satisfy the needs of all children. The policies deal with the seven critical domains affecting children from birth through the passage to adulthood: child care, schooling, transition to work, health care, income security, physical security, and child abuse. While nearly everyone agrees that children are in trouble, there is considerable debate over what kind of trouble they are in, why this is so, and whether government can or should more actively seek to solve these problems. Americans are evenly divided on the question of whether children’s problems are more economic or moral in origin. The seven proposals in this volume both reflect and cut across ideological disagreements. Some call for more government, others call for less, and all call for different government methods for achieving socially agreed upon goals. Recommendations include: replacing major welfare programs and tax subsidies with a set of universal policies, including national health insurance, child support assurance, and universal child care; offering publicly funded vouchers to allow poor children in inner-city neighborhoods to choose their own schools; using both private and governmental resources to get toughon crime through more stringent criminal justice policies and dramatic social measures; and expanding apprenticeship programs for non-college bound youths. In addition to the editors, the contributors are Barbara R. Bergmann and Robert I. Lerman, American University; Douglas J. Besharov, American Enterprise Institute; John J. DiIulio, Jr., Princeton University; Julia Graham Lear, George Washington University; and Diane Ravitch, New York University.

Insurance: Mathematics and Economics


$1938


Insurance: Mathematics and Economics is an international journal that intends to strengthen communication between individuals and groups who produce and apply research results in insurance and finance, aiming to integrate the currently fragmented research in both fields.

To this purpose, Insurance: Mathematics and Economics publishes high quality papers of international interest, concerned with either the theory of insurance mathematics and economics or the inventive application of it. Papers that combine several of these aspects are particularly welcome.The subject matter of the journal includes the theory, models and computational methods of life insurance (including pensions systems, social insurance, and health insurance), of non-life insurance, of reinsurance and other risk-sharing arrangements, as well as of risk management. Of special interest are also its interactions with financial modeling. It also includes innovative insurance applications of results from other fields, such as probability and statistics, computer science and numerical analysis, economics, operations research and management science.Benefits to authorsWe also provide many author benefits, such as free PDFs, a liberal copyright policy, special discounts on Elsevier publications and much more.
