  •  There have been diaries... (0+ / 0-)

    from HCR naysayers that the price charged for an MRI can go from a couple of hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars...

    To say that by having good information about cost and quality measures and making sound choices that consider cost is not a red herring and is included in HCR...

    Even your example, there are ICUs and then there are Hospices that can make granny comfortable in her last days at a much lower cost...

    Is this the silver bullet that will make Healthcare completely affordable...no but every little bit helps when the dollars are so huge...

    Just imagine if every person in this country saved $100 per year by being better consumers of non-emergency healthcare?  That would be about $30 Billion per year in savings...
