It's always weird when people speak of a market solution to medical care provision in reference to the US system of oligopoly, anti-trust exemption and government price fixing, the last done behind closed doors.  The real problem in the US health care system is that participants pay about twice as much for a procedure as does the rest of the OECD.

That the government is releasing previously secret data on Medicare utilization and expenditure is progress.
