"Thomas laid out the big number: Healthcare must be 15% to 20% cheaper. That's not going to happen without pain and radical change. "It's going to take changes in how we do business," he said. "
If more people paid Medicare-like negotiated rates for services, Healthcare would be 15 - 20 % cheaper !

Chris, Do you think that if the HC industry doesn't make these changes on its own, an entity like Wal-Mart is going to do it for them, and in a way they may not like? Already we see people going to MinuteClinics at CVS as opposed to going through the hassle of making an appointment with an overbooked primary care physician. It seems like an industry ripe for a proven cost-slasher to come in and make waves. Let's just hope it's NOT an airline. Can you just imagine the lost xrays and late appointments?
