Rationing Just Medical Care

Lawrence J. Schneiderman, MD
The American Journal of Bioethics
July 2011

U.S. politicians and policymakers have been preoccupied with how to pay for health care. Hardly any thought has been given to what should be paid for—as though health care is a commodity that needs no examination—or what health outcomes should receive priority in a just society

In the July 2011 edition of The American Journal of Bioethics Dr. Lawrence Schneiderman presents a rationing proposal, consistent with U.S. culture and traditions, that deals not with “health care,” the terminology used in the current debate, but with the more modest and limited topic of “medical care.”
