Do you really think employers (via commercial insurers) are willing to continue bearing the cost shift from Medicare & Medicaid?? Where have you been? Loews is sending all of their cardiac cases to the Cleveland Clinic, Pepsi is sending their orthopedic cases to Johns Hopkins, etc, etc. Employers are dodging the cost shift on their own....letting their feet do the talking.
