A Heaping Wad of Accountability

The more healthcare available, the more you use. Or so the saying goes. Or maybe I just made it up, right now.

In anycase, HSAs + high deductible insurance + the ability to price shop like you’re browsing the condiment isle, can shift the risk of healthcare costs in employer based insurance from employer to employee.

Of course, consumer driven health plans only work if there is price transparency. And that’s realy what I wanted to get to, the post on Managed Care Matters.
