    •  Cost to whom? (0+ / 0-)

      When people write about bending the cost curve they are usually referring to price that some entity will pay, state, local, or federal governments, or any other third party payers or individuals. The cost is how much it actually costs to deliver the care, not what someone pays for it. No one writes about that.
