What's In, What's Out? Designing Benefits for Universal Health Coverage

Amanda Glassman , Ursula Giedion and Peter C. Smith


What’s In, What’s Out: Designing Benefits for Universal Health Coverage argues that the creation of an explicit health benefits plan—a defined list of services that are and are not available—is an essential element in creating a sustainable system of universal health coverage. With contributions from leading health economists and policy experts, the book considers the many dimensions of governance, institutions, methods, political economy, and ethics that are needed to decide what’s in and what’s out in a way that is fair, evidence-based, and sustainable over time.



Note: Chapter 13 (p. 290) – “A Matter of Morality: Embedding Ethics and Equity in the Health Benefits Policy”
by Carleigh Krubiner, and Ruth Faden


At a glance: Coverage decisions have significant consequences for people’s health and wellbeing – and can be a matter of life or death. Benefits policy design decisions require careful ethical consideration of how they will impact the range of people they are meant to help.
