The Trouble with Health Care Reform

For anyone who would like to read something brief that captures the problem facing those who would like to reform the health care system while containing costs, I would recommend starting here.

For that matter, it is a great read for anyone concerned about health care in general, or their own health care in particular.

Too much of medical care is not managed -- by physicians, payers, or anyone else -- and it is disconcerting to health care consumers to realize how much of the care that is delivered is unnecessary based on medical evidence. On the other hand, too frequently medical management means financial management, as opposed to management of the health care, and that leads us down a bad path, as well.
