Quick Links: Cost Curve, Primary Care

Hot Air notes that "ObamaCare bends the cost curve... upward". (Related article, "Health Outlays Still Seen Rising".)

The WSJ notes, "Access to Primary Care No Guarantee of Better Care". Hence, any central-planning approach to somehow increase the numbers of primary care doctors won't necessarily actually improve medical outcomes.

Plus based on the Masschusetts experience, we can expect that primary care shortage will get worse and wait times will get longer once ObamaCare is implemented nationwide.
