  • A preliminary report by the Massachusetts Attorney General finds that some Massachusetts hospitals and doctors are paid twice as much as others for essentially the same patient care. The report points to the market clout of the best-paid providers as a main driver of the state’s spiraling health care costs.

    • Forbes magazine just released the list of its most expensive drugs, including one drug that cost $409,500 for a year’s supply – meaning it costs more than $1,000 per day, every day, all year. And three more that each cost more than $350,000 for one year. The article notes that ‘biotech companies can charge pretty much whatever they want.’
