In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court has just upheld the constitutionality of the health care subsidies offered to low-income Americans under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare." With Obamacare firmly in place for years to come, where does health care policy go from here?

The new 11th Edition of Jonas and Kovner's Health Care Delivery in the United States, thoroughly updated to cover the Affordable Care Act and the changes it has brought about, offers a timely and much-needed resource to help readers keep pace with the rapid transformation of our health care system. In these videos, authors James R. Knickman, PhD, and Anthony R. Kovner, PhD explain why Health Care Delivery has changed - and why it remains the premier guide to health care policy in the US.
