Last week prominent Republican thinker, Lanhee Chen, was published an op-ed in Bloomberg on Medicare reform.
He noted: On Medicare, Republicans and Democrats don’t agree about much, except this: The current fee-for-service system is unsustainable, and the broken formula used to pay doctors who treat Medicare patients is a big reason why.
Lanhee goes on to explore a potential point of consensus for US politicians on this usually polemic point of debate. Interesting to watch as the debate goes on.
