Obamacare Impact on Wasteful Spending

Posted by Mike O on August 10, 2009

Six separate areas were found to be the greatest source of waste in HealthCare:

  • Defensive medicine ($210 billion)
  • Inefficient claim form processing ($210 billion)
  • ER as a clinic ($14 billion)
  • Medical mistakes ($17 billion)
  • Preventable readmissions ($25 billion)
  • Noscomial (acquired in-hospital) infections ($3 billion)

Can Obama  tell me how the Fed’s natural tendency to massively increase the second one could possibly be even offset in the others?  And they say they’re going to save Money?  Can anyone give a single example that the Federal government ever managed to reduce costs, rather than increase them??
