Incrementalism: Ethical Implications of Policy Choices
This paper discusses ethical issues in incremental approaches to expanding health insurance coverage. Although any reduction in the number of uninsured is morally desirable, there are real moral differences between different policy options. This paper, which is part of the Kaiser Incremental Health Reform Project, examines these moral differences by identifying the values and commitments that ground the different policy options.
