DESCRIPTION
This course examines the application of economic concepts to management problems and policy issues of the health sector. Topics covered include measuring the benefits of healthcare, the role of insurance in spreading risk and altering incentives, the production of healthcare, price and non-price competition among providers, and proposed policies that are intended to contain costs. The course consists primarily of lectures, combined with two intensive antitrust "trials" which allow students to take a deep dive into the competitive and value creating strategies of provider and insurer organizations. Grades will primarily be based on two exams and performance at the "trials."
