Wall Street Journal: strengthening health savings accounts and publishing prices could help lower health care costs.

The Wall Street Journal has a useful article on how to reduce health care costs:  allow prices of meds to be shown to patients if they pay out-of-pocket, and make Health Savings Accounts even more portable to other family members, and available to seniors.

Scott W. Atlas provides the article here. He also thinks we can have more less specialized doctors again. 

The video above shows we have something to learn from European health care systems, which are not as totally single payor as the public thinks.  I remember asking this question in Toulouse in 2001 of a family at a train station, and they said they liked the system they had. "It works for us."
