Despite the lack of confidence in government agencies to operate a nationalized health-care system in the United States, government agencies have significantly influenced the distribution and financing of health-care services in the market.
Using the State of Florida as a case study, we examine the conditions under which a state health-care agency can consistently influence health-care market arrangements.
We examined records from Florida's legislative sessions between 1965 and 1993 focusing on 27 legislative initiatives to involve the state health-care agencies in the health-care services market.
Using Boolean qualitative comparative analysis (QCA), we examined the conditions that facilitated or inhibited legislative policy initiatives for state action in Florida's health-care services market.
The cohesiveness ofstate administrative agency and legislative leadership is of primary importance.
Fragmented interests among health-care providers and fiscally legitimate policy positions, whether those of state agencies or health-care providers, are important enabling, factors for state action.
