Block Grants and Other Health Service Programs, 1984. Hearings before The Committee on Labor and Human Resources. United States Senate. Ninety-Eighth Congress, Second Session. On Review of Expiring Public Health Service Act Reauthorizations in Order to Improve the Health and Well-Being of the American People. (February 22, March 7 and 14, 1984).
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources.
This series of Congressional hearings considers the five major Public Health Service Act reauthorizations due to expire at the end of fiscal 1984. Three of the health programs involved are block grant reauthorizations: (1) the alcohol, drug abuse and mental health block grant; (2) the preventive health services block grant; and (3) the primary care block grant. The others are the National Health Service Corps Amendments of 1984 and the Health Maintenance Organization Amendments of 1984. Many of the testimonies focus on the effectiveness or shortcomings of President Reagan's initiative of 1981 whereby Federal categorical programs were transfered to the States through block grants, among them the three Public Health Service block grants. Testimonies are heard from, among others, representatives of: the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors, the American Medical Care Review Association, the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, the National Mental Health Association, and numerous other medical, dental, nursing, and hospital associations.
