Preview

This chapter begins with a discussion of the three approaches used by the United States to cope with physicians' conflicts of interest that interact: professional and industry self-regulation, managed care, and law. It then examines the three broad categories of state regulation. The first supports managed care while the second supplies remedies for problems created by managed care and cost-containment policies. The third category of regulation addresses financial ties between physicians and pharma, medical device firms, and other commercial interests.
