Bad News for ObamaCare, and Other News

Bad news for ObamaCare. Pay-for-performance is Massachusetts isn’t working.

More bad news: making preventive care free leads to more utilization. State mandates increased  mammograms by 800,000 over 14 years.

What health care rationing will really be like. Very funny video.

Prime Minister: National Health Service is “second rate.” Apparent gaffe.

Very funny explanation of medical loss ratios. (video)

Two more videos on ObamaCare and concierge medicine: Here and here. (HT to Ralph Webber)

    I like your funny videos.

  2. Ken says:

    Prime Minister tells the truth and it’s described as a “gaffe”?

  3. Joe S. says:

    Pay for performance doesn’t work in the other 49 states either.

  4. Neil H. says:

    I think we are going to have a huge rationing problem. Free preventive care will be part of the cause. Also ther will be 32 million newly insured. All told, suplly will greatly exceed demand.

  5. Nancy says:

    I agree wilth Neil.

  6. Devon Herrick says:

    Pay for performance is a worthy goal. But the lack of market forces means the performance being measured (and paid for) is not always what enhanced value or boosts efficiency. Often times, it’s an arbitrary metric dreamt up as a way to encourage a worth, but- hard-to- measure, outcome.

  7. Jeff says:

    Good videos.

  8. madeline says:

    Is Obama really turning over a new leaf? Or is this just a ruse?

    “Pay-for-performance is Massachusetts isn’t working.”

    Incentives dont matter?


  10. Tom H. says:

    Steve, incentives matter, but to-down management of the practice of medicine by far-away bureaucrats doesn’t work.

  11. Greg says:

    Cameron, was right, BTW. No need to apologize.
