Frakes contributes to new Oxford Handbook of U.S. Health Law
Prof. Michael Frakes and two co-authors examine the economics of health care rationing in the new Oxford Handbook of U.S. Health Law (I. Glenn Cohen et al eds., Oxford University Press, 2017). They describe the various dimensions across which health care rationing can operate, how economic analyses inform decisions regarding which services to cover, and various practical and conceptual challenges that can arise with economic analyses, among other matters.
Frakes interests include empirical research in the areas of health law and innovation policy. His research in health is largely focused on understanding how certain legal and financial incentives affect the decisions of physicians and other health care providers.
