Another Wrong Conclusion Drawn on Healthcare

Rationing care — or rational care? - Ezra Klein - The Washington Post: "To put it another way: If individuals have less available money available to them from the start — whether due to economic hardship, higher deductibles, or increased cost-sharing in government health programs — there's likely to be a drop in their use of both unnecessary and necessary care. The question is how to curb the former without sacrificing the latter."

Repeat after me ...

There is not a shred of evidence that there is substantial overuse of medical services in the country on the part of patients.

Not a bit


This is such a strawman that it is almost embarrassing that it keeps getting trotted out.
