Hsieh PJM OpEd: "How Big Medicine Will Affect Patient Care"

PJMedia has just published part 2 of my 4-part series on changes in American health care: "How Big Medicine Will Affect Patient Care"

Here is the opening:
The first article of this series described how the ObamaCare law is fueling the rise of government-controlled Big Medicine. This second article will take a closer look at how Big Medicine will control how what medical care patients can receive.
I discuss how government controls over health spending will lead to controls on the health care you may be able to receive. These controls interpose the government between the doctor and the patient, endangering the doctor-patient relationship.
