One Procedure, One Price: Business Prof Weighs In

Uniform medical records and health cards are just two of the ideas that could begin to bring down the unit cost in health-care treatment, according to a column in the Tampa Bay Times by Richard Meyer, emeritus professor of business at University of South Florida.

He also favors the requirement that hospitals stop charging the uninsured more than they charge the best-insured.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
