Who Pays Whom For What In Health Care?

  1. Found this great series of articles from 1998 re who pays for healthcare and still valid today. Helps to shed a little light on why nursing is grouped in room charges and difficulties entailed in trying to change to payment per nursing action. Current trend is to group payment based on Diagnostic catagories as Medicare doing under DRG/HERG's etc.
    Very thought provoking. Karen
