The doctor, the rich, and the indigent

Abstract
This essay explores the major conflict between doing the best for indigents requiring health care and not unfairly imposing burdens on those who pay for that care through cost-shifting. The author argues that there is in fact no dilemma or conflict of duties presented here, but only because the doctor's concern with justice in bearing the burden of health care requires a system within which different levels of health care are available and in which indigent care is provided in a manner that minimizes the cost of providing that care. Keywords: justice, levels of care, cost-shifting CiteULike Connotea Del.icio.us What's this?
