Solid hardcover.; Part of pioneering late 1920s and early 1930s attempt to examine the structure and costs of medical care in the United States, to deal with the rising costs of medical and hospital care which were outstripping the ability of most to afford the latest care offered by a more professionalized and specialized medical system, even before the Great Depression hit. The CCMC's encouragement of group practices provoked fierce opposition from the American Medical Association, since most members were solo private general practitioners, let alone the final report's views on health insurance. How to deliver health care is still a highly controversial topic nearly a century later. ; Publications of the Committee on the Costs of Medical Care; Vol. 24; ix, 135, (6) pages.
