Wendell Potter testimony 2013

Healthinsurance.org contributor Wendell Potter got a less-than-warm reception when he testified at a March 15 hearing about the affordability of Obamacare.

There’s plenty about healthcare costs:

  • Bradley Flansbaum at The Hospitalist Leader looks at inpatient costs and payers;
  • Jason Shafrin at Healthcare Economist looks at geographic variations in Medicare spending per beneficiary;
  • and Henry Stern of InsureBlog looks at one employer’s attempt to rein in health costs.

HWR also reviews some great pieces about our future:  future healthcare leaders;  whether the U.S. can avoid a future physician shortage;. And there’s even more here.

Watch for the next edition April 12 over at the Colorado Health Insurance Insider.
