every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world. - arthur schopenhauer
Some interesting findings from a recent Kaiser Family Foundation report on how the public differs with the medical community regarding health care reform:
I like that chart Mike!! I agree with the experts. It wasn't till we had a high deductible plan that I realized that I actually had some control in theses matters, and that I could ask questions and do my own research to figure out what "treatment" is necessary, etc.There's one way that we could help the problem... by realizing that the client/customer gets the final say. I'll spare you the supporting stories I have. :) You are welcome.
I totally agree that this seems to be one of the best ways that those of us with health insurance can do our part to keep costs down. I for one know that I'm less apt to consume any good as the cost increases.The only thing I'd add is that this doesn't necessarily solve the problem of people who currently can't afford health care (though it might help down the line). I think we're more likely to see a public plan that provides a basic level of service, then allow for individuals to purchase additional insurance on top of that to provide for an expanded level of care.Side note, I wonder what would happen if you offered free tuition to MD's under the pretense that they had to take on Medicare patients once they start practicing?
