If I remember correctly, he did report on Gander Mountain’s rejection of tax subsidies.
Is more preventative care always better? I just finished reading a couple of books that question this assumption: Dr. Nortin Hadler’s Rethinking Aging and H. Gilbert Welch’s Overdiagnosed. They discuss various cancer screenings, treatment of mild hypertension, tight glycemic control of type 2 diabetes, etc.
On the other hand– I guess you could say that both books could present a powerful argument for more primary care physicians– giving PCPs the time to discuss costs and benefits to various treatments and screenings.
And both books do lay bare the profit motive behind many treatment guidelines. Hadler is particularly withering in his critique of contract research organizations.
