    Congress would set Medicare drug spending levels based on European sales and administrative pharmacists and doctors would parcel out the money based on novelty, technology advancement, drug performance, side effect profile and costs, key manufacturing process, and prices of the nearest generic drug by molecular structure.

    Capitation could also be done for medical testing materials and medical imaging.

    •  I prefer capitation for all expensive drugs (0+ / 0-)

      for all age groups.

      Most of the pre-existing condition problem is due to overly expensive drugs. The insurers don't want ~$5,000/year premium customers who use over $10,000/year of more of pills each yearly.
