5 Myths About Health Care

November 24, 2008 • Advocacy • Larry Benz

from the March 2008 EBP Ambassador of the MonthShannon Brownlee author of Overtreated in yesterday’s Washington Post.  Great article.

Her proposed myths:

1. America has the best health care in the world

2. Somebody else is paying for your health care

3. We could save a lot if we could cut the administrative waste of private insurance

4. Health-care reform is going to cost a bundle  (she aptly points out a few examples of the benefit of EBP)

5. Americans aren’t ready for a major overhaul of the health-care system

to wit, I would add a #6 and #7

6. You can have health care reform without legal reform

7. Providers reimbursement cuts will save bundles
