Healthcare Reform Transparency

America needs to expand its debate of healthcare systems to include a review of how costs should be contained or limited, as well as what all the elements of cost truly are.

How much should something cost? How do we determine its value? How are various medical procedures priced? How is insurance priced? How should medicines be priced?

Why should the cost of services vary extraordinarily from that in other countries?

These and many other questions should take center stage. How we pay for healthcare is treating the symptoms, the cure of our social illness is determing how to cure the costs that are spiralling out of control.
