The Real Costs of Hospital Care
In a video interview with University of Pennsylvania Wharton School economics professor Mark Pauly, Chileshe Nkonde-Price, MD, discusses the price of hospital care for patients covered by public and private insurance. The issue has been much in the news and public debate in the wake of a special issue of Time magazine that published the most extensive report ever written about the little-known systems hospitals use to set prices hundreds or even thousands of times higher than the real costs of the services they provide. This is the third in a new series of online video and audio casts jointly produced by LDI and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars program.
