Health Stat of the Day

I'm going to try a new series -- Health Stat of the Day -- which is to say most days I will be attempting to do so.

Today's stat comes from a nifty little essay called "The Not-So-Sad History of Medicare Cost Containment as Told in One Chart", by Thomas Bodenheimer, which brings us an equally nifty stat:
... Private insurance administrative costs continue at their 11.5% rate while Medicare is administered at 3.6%

That's in 2002.

Later today I'll post on the charts.

Nice. We're using Bodenheimer for our one req'd text for the one health policy course we have during med school.
