    Ethics, Evidence, and Cost in Newborn Screening.Baily Mary Ann & H. Murray Thomas - 2008 - Hastings Center Report 38 (3):23-31.
    When deciding what disorders to screen newborns for, we should be guided by evidence of real effectiveness, take opportunity cost into account, distribute costs and benefits fairly, and respect human rights. Current newborn screening policy does not meet these requirements.

    Futility, Autonomy, and Cost in End-of-Life Care.Mary Ann Baily - 2011 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 39 (2):172-182.
    This paper uses the controversy over the denial of care on futility grounds as a window into the broader issue of the role of cost in decisions about treatment near the end of life. The focus is on a topic that has not received the attention it deserves: the difference between refusing medical treatment and demanding it. The author discusses health care reform and the ethics of cost control, arguing that we cannot achieve universal access to quality care at affordable (...)

    Futility, Autonomy, and Cost in End-of-Life Care.Mary Ann Baily - 2011 - Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics 39 (2):172-182.
    In 1989, Helga Wanglie, 86 years old, broke her hip. This began a medical downhill course that a year later caused her health care providers to conclude that she would not benefit from continued medical treatment. It would be futile, and therefore, should not be provided. Her husband disagreed, and the conflict eventually led to a lawsuit. The Wanglie case touched off an extended debate in the medical and bioethical literature about medical futility: what it means and how useful the (...)

    Improving Fairness in Coverage Decisions: Appearance or Reality?Mary Ann Baily - 2004 - American Journal of Bioethics 4 (3):110-112.
    It is good for people to understand their insurance coverage and the reasoning that has shaped it, to be able to contribute their two cents if they want to, and to know that their plan has at least attempted to make decisons that are consistent, fair and compassionate. It is also good for them to be told that attention to cost is ethically required. Nevertheless, while following the recommendations of Wynia et al (2004) might make benefits design and administration appear (...)

    Talking to Each Other About Universal Health Care: Do Values Belong in the Discussion?Mary Ann Baily - 2006 - Hastings Center Report 36 (6):4-4.
    Paul Menzel and Donald Light ("A Conservative Case for Universal Access to Health Care," Jul-Aug 2006) tell a story that is plausible. However, based on my twenty-five years of experience as a policy analyst interested in access to health care, I find it inaccurate for a number of reasons.
