He says don’t blame hospital charges


In an essay that ran  on The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Web site, he says “I was disappointed to see headlines about high hospital charges dominating the media coverage of cost data released this month.

“The headlines attracted public attention. But they may distract us from a more important discussion about why we Americans spend so much on healthcare but are so unhealthy.

“Many factors are driving this sad reality, but high hospital charges are not chief among them.”

His piece details what he sees as the main contributing factors in the wide differences in hospital charges.
