Healthcare Rationing and the Cutoff Problem

Philip M. Rosoff

  • Utilizes real-world cases and examples to illustrate how Rosoff's argument for medical rationing could work
  • Considers and rejects proposals by others on how to ration
  • Develops an approach that solves the cutoff problem in a fair and generous manner that would permit rationing that could be acceptable to the American public
  • Appeals to the ideas of distributive justice, utilizing the approach of accountability for reasonableness as originally proposed by Daniels and Sabin and expanded in Rosoff's previous work
