Definitely worth a read!
This looks like a good read…
Didn’t I just blog about this? Is the NYTimes copying me? LOL!
I think we have done pretty well on these factors in parenting. Interesting research for those who have small children.
Not exactly a big surprise, but worth noting. BTW, eat yogurt!
I wonder whether out of pocket spending for mental health services has gone up or down with high-deductible health coverage. More research to come. But for now, a look at how “consumer-directed” health care is affecting overall consumer spending for health care:
“I’ve heard of nothing but acceleration” of employers into consumer-directed health insurance, said Roy Ramthun, a benefits consultant who was a senior health policy advisor in President George W. Bush’s administration. “More local units of government, school districts and even some union plans are starting to move more aggressively into these areas.”
This article states that high deductible plans have skyrocketed from 8% in 2009 to 19% last year. If they continue at this rate, about 50% of people will have high deductible plans by 2020. Oh what a wonderful world it will be.
