THE COST OF MEDICAL CARE AND WHAT YOU AND I CAN DO ABOUT IT

THE COST OF MEDICAL CARE AND WHAT YOU AND I CAN DO ABOUT IT This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract All of us are concerned, and a little bewildered, by the rapid rise in the cost of medical care; a rise, we are told, that will continue. At the same time we hear complaints that the quality of medical service may not be as good as formerly, and those of us who have had to be hospitalized know that nursing service is certainly less adequate in spite of the exceedingly high cost of a hospital bed. It seems appropriate to explain to our patients some of the reasons for the rising costs of medical care, and what your doctor is doing to try to keep these costs down while constantly improving the quality of medical service. There is something that you, the patient, can do, too, to keep these costs down.
