Regional differences in health care (and cost)
I've directed your attention to this resource before, but methinks it bears repeating. If, for instance, you are interested in seeing how your region stacks up against the national average (surgery rates per 1,000 Medicare enrollees) on knee replacement, heart bypass, mastectomy, then click here. Encourage y'all to click around in it...as indicated by the blog heading, there is cost information as well.
