"America's Health Care Safety Net" explains how competition and cost issues in today's health care marketplace are posing major challenges to continued access to care for America's poor and uninsured.

Mounting pressures on the system - rising numbers of uninsured patients, decline in Medicaid eligibility due to welfare reform, increasing health care access barriers for minority and immigrant populations, and more. Specific consequences for providers and their patients from the competitive, managed care environment - detailing the evolution and impact of Medicaid managed care. Key issues highlighted in four populations are - children with special needs, people with serious mental illness, people with HIV/AIDS, and the homeless.
