The Washington Times editorializes on the stupid coverage decision CMS made on ESAs. Hillary has made her Best Practice Institute a cornerstone of her new "American Health Choices Plan" (has anyone been more manipulative in the use of the English language than Hillary) Yes, you will have choices, much like the choices you get from a elementary school cafeteria. The Best Practice Institute will tell which drugs at which dose at which time without regard to individual variation because that's what is required to cut $100 billion from health care spending. That and price controls on new drugs. You think a one size fits all dose for ESAs is a one shot deal (that ignores the impact of cost effectiveness or quality of life relative to transfusions). Think again. If CMS gets the power to impose a dose specific criteria on one drug, it can do it on ALL medicines.
That's Hillary's plan for Health Care Choices....http://washingtontimes.com/article/20070916/EDITORIAL/109160019/1013/EDITORIAL
