We’ve been hearing that healthcare costs are rising at an unsustainable rate. Is that true?
Should the U.S. move to a single-payer healthcare system?
Should the government negotiate prices directly with drug companies?
Should states favor Managed Medicaid over traditional fee-for-service Medicaid to cover poorer Americans?
Should Americans have to work in order to receive Medicaid benefits?
Should Americans be required to have health insurance?
Medicare typically pays doctors and hospitals at lower rates than private payers. Doesn’t that mean that the government is better at cost control than private payers?
Medicare is popular and it's working. Shouldn’t we expand Medicare coverage to all Americans?
Medicare has a lower operating overhead than private sector payers and doesn't need to make a profit. Doesn’t that mean that if government were the only payer we’d save billions on overhead costs that don’t help patients?
Isn’t the best way to contain healthcare costs to eliminate fee-for-service medicine, which rewards doctors for doing more tests and procedures?
Isn’t patient cost-sharing a good way to control costs?
Is the rising cost of drugs one of our biggest problems in healthcare?
Is it reasonable for Americans to pay much more in healthcare costs than do people in other developed countries?
Is Indiana’s Healthy Hoosiers program a model that could work in other states?
If Massachusetts’ healthcare reform is working well and was the model for Obamacare, wouldn’t copying its features more exactly make whatever replaces the Affordable Care Act (ACA) work just as well?
Has the move toward accountable care been successful at controlling costs?
Has the government push towards Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) caused hospitals to merge and buy up doctor practices?
Doesn't the added coverage of millions of Americans represent a major success of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)?
Does paying doctors and provider organizations a fixed budget to cover a group of patients cause them to withhold some care so they won’t lose money?
Are the ACA exhanges in a "death spiral"?
Are Medicaid block grants a good thing?
