We Pay Dearly For A Lack Of Price Transparency

The reality is that no one knows in our price fixed health care system the real value for any activity good, bad or indifferent. With price transparency, health saving accounts and high deductible insurance we could provide excellent care for all in America at far less cost. One only has to look at the state of Indiana to see the success of this model of health care.

The Misguided Supreme Court Decision

By the Supreme Court not striking down the PPACA our nation will possibly be saddled with an intrusive unworkable health bureaucracy, the inability for physicians to care for their patients appropriately and huge deficits we cannot afford. Many millions will remain uninsured with many millions in Medicaid which borders on having no insurance at all. The irony is that Health Savings Accounts along with High Deductible Insurance was beginning to spread throughout the country lowering health care costs. With creative tax policy we could provide excellent care for all in America with these patient centered insurance policies.

The American Medical Association And Others Hypocrisyy

Posted in part on Sermo 7/10/2012 Hypocrisy abounds, the AMA, ACP and others support the bill because they think they will receive more money. Ironic, from a government that has to mortgage the future of our children and grandchildren to do so. There are of course better alternatives that using proven methods would insure all Americans at far less cost and promote a closer relationship between the patient and their doctor. As an example see our article in the Washington times, http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/may/3/prudence-of-a-patient-centered-approach/
