This chapter returns to a theme already prominent in the chapter—that the legitimacy problem is international and affects health care systems at all levels of development and with various methods of financing and organization. Specifically, it looks at how “accountability for reasonableness” has become the focus, in content if not in name, of concerns about the decision-making process in several universal-coverage systems. The chapter also briefly explores its relevance to health care reform in developing countries.

Keywords: health care; accountability; reasonableness; limit-setting; fair process; developing countries
