COVERING HEALTH ISSUES 2006 - Table of Contents
 
Acknowledgements

This publication is made possible by a generous grant from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation of Princeton, N.J., whose interest in assuring better access to health care for all Americans and improved quality of care is, we trust, served by the publication. Special thanks go to David Colby of the Foundation for shepherding this project through to completion, and to the Foundation's Najaf Ahmad for her attention to every important piece of information.

We are grateful to Marilyn Moon of the American Institutes for Research for her insightful comments on the entire book during the editing process. We thank the many outside experts who wrote the original drafts of the chapters: Karen Pollitz - uninsured; Paul Fronstin - private health coverage; Cindy Mann - children's coverage; Jon Gardner - Medicare; Jack Hoadley - Medicare prescription drugs; Tim Westmoreland - Medicaid; Steve Zuckerman and Josh McFeeters - health care costs; Richard Sorian - quality and health information technology; Pat Taylor - mental health; Margo Edmunds - public health; and Deborah Potter - covering health issues for TV and radio.

The entire Alliance for Health Reform staff and our capable interns contributed enormously to make this book all that it is. You can see them listed on page VI of the Introduction. Anne Montgomery wrote the original draft of the chapter on long-term care and the appendix on the congressional budget process. Bill Erwin drafted the chapter on disparities. But the roles played by other Alliance staffers and interns were also tremendously important.

The sourcebook was designed again this year by Alisa Prendergast of Cyberonyx International in Stafford, VA, and was printed by Doyle Printing of Landover, MD.
