Uncle Sam's Dangerous Prescriptions

Evans, M. Stanton
November 1977
National Review;11/25/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 46, p1368
This article focuses on various efforts made by the federal government in the U.S. to control the increasing cost of medical care in the country. Health-care costs, hospital charges in particular, are rising in the U.S. The goal of U.S. President Jimmy Carter's hospital cost containment plan is to control annual increases in hospital revenues. The best proposal for controlling the government-sponsored rise of medical prices is that presented by U.S. Senator Herman Talmadge, and cosponsored by 19 other senators. The Talmadge bill would abolish cost-plus reimbursements, and this is certainly a beginning.
