Lundberg’s list of why health care costs are rising


While people on the streets, experts and legislators debate the causes of rising health care costs, George Lundberg, M.D., editor-at-large of MedPage Today, does no such hand wringing.

He declares that a survey of the topic that was posted by his publication missed the point and did not provide the correct answers.

Lundberg, who edited the Journal of the American Medical Association for 17 years and is a member of the Institute of Medicine, lists what he sees as the “Primary Drivers of Rising Healthcare Costs.”
