Health Care Rationing with Universal Coverage and in Time of Pandemics

In conjunction with the Center for Practical Bioethics symposium, Up to Date broadcasts live from the Kansas City Library Central branch as Steve Kraske talks with Dr. Susan Goold, Director of the University of Michigan Medical School's bioethics program, and Dr. John Lantos, John B. Francis Chair in Bioethics, and a professor of pediatrics and bioethics at The University of Chicago about the ethics of rationing health care during pandemic flu outbreaks and in a time of universal health care.

They discuss the difficult decisions many providers may have to make in order to cover all citizens, including whether or not America’s health care system has the resources to care for all, and what role universal coverage may play in health care rationing.
