fuse brown finalProf. Erin Fuse Brown’s article”The Blind Spot in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s Cost Control Policies was published online ahead of print in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. In the article, Fuse Brown describes how containing health care cost requires reduction of overtreatment and constraint of health care prices. Provisions in the ACA address health care prices for Medicare, but private insurance is largely ignored. However, other provisions promote integration, pushing health care entities to consolidate, and potentially drive prices higher.
