Reinhardt was born 1937 in Osnabrück, Germany, and later emigrated to Canada where he received his Bachelor of Commerce degree from University of Saskatchewan. He later received a Ph.D. in economics from Yale University in 1970, with a thesis titled "An Economic Analysis of Physicians' Practices" under the supervision of Richard Ruggles. He taught courses in economic theory and policy, accounting, and health economics and policy. Reinhardt's scholarly work focused on economics and policy and includes more far-reaching topics such as cost-benefit analyses of the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar and the Space Shuttle. He died on November 14, 2017 in Princeton, NJ.

In July 2015 Reinhardt's 2013 syllabus and first lecture for a class titled "Introductory Korean Drama" received attention from several bloggers. By way of explanation, Reinhardt introduced the class by stating

After the near‐collapse of the world’s financial system has shown that we economists really do not know how the world works, I am much too embarrassed to teach economics anymore, which I have done for many years. I will teach Modern Korean Drama instead.

Although I have never been to Korea, I have watched Korean drama on a daily basis for over six years now. Therefore I can justly consider myself an expert in that subject.

It was not clear whether Reinhardt actually intended to teach the course.

Reinhardt's research focused on hospital pricing, systems of health care around the world, Medicare reform, and health care spending. His work appeared in Health Affairs, The New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, and The British Medical Journal.

In a recent paper, Reinhardt discusses the obstacles to success of consumer-directed health care in light of the lack of transparency in hospital pricing. He suggests several reforms that could lead to better information on hospital pricing for consumer decision-making, including a national set of Diagnosis-related group weights to which each hospital could then apply its own conversion factor. Reinhardt's previous work on hospitals examined the tax and cost of equity capital advantages of not-for-profit hospitals over for-profit hospitals.

Reinhardt's scholarship analyzed the U.S. health care industry in relation to systems around the world. He argued that higher U.S. health spending is a result of higher U.S. per capita gross domestic product (GDP) as well as intricate and disjointed payment systems. Reinhardt's work on foreign systems of health care includes a 2004 analysis of Switzerland that appeared in The Journal of the American Medical Association. In it, Reinhardt argued that there is little correlation between the prevalence of consumer choice and the high quality of Swiss health care.

In 2003, Reinhardt, along with 14 other prominent health policy experts and private health care industry leaders, signed an open letter arguing that Medicare should lead the U.S. health care industry in paying for performance by tying financial reimbursement to quality measures.

Reinhardt's work on health care spending includes his argument that the aging of the U.S. population is not the primary cause of the growth in U.S. health care spending.

Private industry and advisory roles

In addition to his university duties, Reinhardt was active as an advisor for government, non-profit organizations, and private industry and held directorships in various for-profit companies in the health industry. Reinhardt served on the Governing Council of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences between 1979 and 1982, after election to the Institute in 1978. At the Institute, he served on a number of study panels, including, the Committee on the Implications of For-Profit Medicine, the Committee on Technical Innovation in Medicine, the Committee on the Implications of a Physicians Surplus, and the Committee on the U.S. Physician Supply. In 1996, he was appointed to the Board of Health Care services of the Institute.

From 1986-1995, Reinhardt served three consecutive three-year terms as a Commissioner on the Physician Payment Review Commission (PPRC), established in 1986 by the Congress to advise it on issues related to the payment of physicians. Reinhardt serves as a Commissioner for the Kaiser Family Foundation Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured. Reinhardt was or is a member of numerous editorial boards, among them The New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, The Journal of Health Economics, the Milbank Quarterly, and Health Affairs.

Currently, Reinhardt serves as a trustee of Duke University and the Tekla Family of Funds. He also served on the Boards of Directors of, and had financial interests in, Boston Scientific Corporation, a leading maker of medical devices, and Amerigroup Corporation, a large health insurer whose clients consist primarily of persons enrolled in Medicare. Reinhardt had also previously served on the Board of Directors of Triad Hospitals, Inc, until that company was merged into Community Health Systems in 2007. Reinhardt is also a regular contributor to the New York Times' Economix blog where he writes about economic matters, particularly the economics of health care.

In the 2009 Frontline show "Sick in America", Reinhardt criticized the United States for spending 24% of every health care dollar on administration, and pointed out that Canada spends less than half of the U.S. amount and Taiwan spends significantly less than Canada. Reinhardt faulted the seeming U.S. preference for an unwieldy "mishmash of private insurance plans" for the inefficiency. He said if the U.S. could spend half as much on administration, it would save more than enough money to cover all the uninsured.

Regulating Managed Care: Theory, Practice, and Future Options
Regulating Managed Care: Theory, Practice, and Future Options
What should be government's role in a market-oriented health care system? What's the appropriate amount of regulation? Who should regulate-states, federal government, or market forces? What role do the courts play in this regulation? Are there existing models that might guide leaders in designing an effective regulatory structure? Welcome to the great managed care debate. In Regulating Managed Care, twenty-six of the nation's leading health policy experts give health care administrators, clinicians, and policy makers insight into the issues behind this critical exchange and provide leaders with a road map to assess the policy options available to protect the quality of our health care delivery system. "This collection of papers, from an extraordinary group of authors, makes a valuable contribution to the ongoing policy debate and will be of interest to anyone concerned with the future of our health care system."---Charles A. Sanders, retired chairman and CEO Glaxo Inc. and former general director, Massachusetts General Hospital

The Future U.S. Healthcare System: Who Will Care for the Poor and Uninsured?
The Future U.S. Healthcare System: Who Will Care for the Poor and Uninsured?
With the rejection of national healthcare reform, the US has turned to market solutions for healthcare. In a price-competitive, market-driven health system, the private payer may no longer subsidize health care for uninsured and indigent patients, and health care providers and public clinics bent on reducing prices may reduce charity work. Twenty-two contributions address these issues and propose both short-term and long-term solutions. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

Dabei ist dann Lachen vorprogrammiert. Lernen Sie die Freunde des Verfassers „Mattes“, „Debbel“, „Kaktus“, „Fritzchen“ und noch viele andere kennen oder all die Leute, denen der Autor so lustige Namen verpasste, wie zum Beispiel: „Paul Ahner“, „Rainer Stoff“, „Frau Mostrich“, „Pastor Cherub“, „Kai- und Andi Mauer“, „Ernst Haft“ und „Wilma Streit“, um hier nur einige zu nennen! Mit seinen lustigen Geschichten verknüpft der Schreiber seine Kinder- und Jugendzeit in seiner alten Heimat, wobei diese auch in jedem X-beliebigen Ort hätten spielen können. Zudem können Sie mit den Erlebnissen, die unter dem Titel: „Das Westpaket“ stehen, erleben, wie man mit Scherz-Artikeln ein Bauchtraining absolvieren kann, das man sonst in keiner Trainingsstunde schafft... Begeben Sie sich auch einmal mit dem Autor und „Kaktus“ auf Eiersuche oder zu einem Rennen auf der Eisscholle. Machen Sie die Bekanntschaft mit verrückten Hühnern, sowie „Max & Moritz“, die auf dem alten Friedhof ihr Unwesen treiben!

Bei all diesen Geschehnisse und noch vielen mehr kommt auf keinen Fall Langeweile auf. Im Gegenteil, denn durch die lockere Art, wie der Schöpfer, dieser wirklich humorvollen Geschichten seine Erinnerungen rüber bringt und die Personen, sowie seine Umgebung beschreibt, will man ganz einfach nur wissen, wie es weiter geht. Aber lesen Sie doch selbst, wobei ich Ihnen einfach nur viel Spaß wünsche! Till Eulenspiegel oder einer, der es schon gelesen hat...

Social Security and Medicare: Individual vs. Collective Risk and Responsibility (Conference of the National Academy of Social Insurance)
Social Security and Medicare: Individual vs. Collective Risk and Responsibility (Conference of the National Academy of Social Insurance)
Recent policy debates about the future of Social Security and Medicare have been dominated by the issue of personal versus societal responsibility. Significant changes now being considered would increase the level of privatization and tilt these programs away from defined benefit toward defined contribution models.This annual volume of the National Academy of Social Insurance examines the concept of introducing choice into the Social Security and Medicare programs, how it would be defined and structured, and what sort of safeguards would be needed to protect program participants. The ideas, from representatives of the public and private sectors, range from ¡°tinkering¡± to ¡°overhauling¡± the programs to make them more responsive and cost-effective. The contributors provide an overview of the history and fundamental values of social insurance, discuss options for reforming Social Security and Medicare, review the benefits and drawbacks of expanding choice options, explore the types of mechanisms needed to protect consumers if market-based reforms are adopted, and address the political likelihood of Social Security and Medicare reforms. The essays in this volume give parameters to the debate over the future of Social Security and Medicare, and reflect the range and diversity of views which will shape these two hallmark social insurance programs for decades to come.
