HEALTH CARE TRIAGE

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - VOICES & VIEWS -

“Forc­ing health care providers to ac­cept Medi­care re­im­burse­ment rates is a great way to cut costs. In the long run, any doc­tor or hos­pi­tal that can not pay their bills with Medi­care pay­ments should just close down. Any re­sult­ing short­age of providers will en­cour­age a triage of the pa­tients, sort­ing out the ones who will ben­e­fit from ser­vices from those who won’t.” — Com­ment on Chris Tom­lin­son’s col­umn on Medi­care ef­fi­cien­cies.
