By the Kaiser Family Foundation, finally an easier explanation of health care reform. Except it still seems confusing. Sigh - at least it's a start. Though I don't know what this is about stopping the huge increase in medicaid/medicare funding to hospitals and doctors - maybe the total amount paid to doctors and hospitals from these programs has increased, but the reimbursement rate has significantly DECREASED per person, and every year congress stalls when trying to decide if they're even going to continue reimbursement. What a crazy system I've gotten myself into.
