NPR’s Marketplace has a story today on daily deal sites for health care. I’m quoted.
The story is drawn from a longer piece on NPR’s Dallas station, KERA.
My view: deal sites are an interesting phenomenon but are not likely to play a major role in health care cost containment or price transparency. The deals are and will likely remain confined to ancillary providers such as dentists, vision care, and cosmetic dermatology.August 8, 2013
