A Pacific Research Institute study I authored found that the costs of the two flagship federal health care programs--Medicare and Medicaid--have risen far more than the costs of all other health care in the United States. From 1970 through 2008, the costs of Medicare and Medicaid each rose one-third more, per patient, than the costs of all other health care in America--the vast majority of which is purchased privately. And that’s without counting the Medicare prescription drug program.Agreed.
