If you have been paying any attention over the last months, you are aware of the growing conversation in our country about health care costs. Much of it is focused on large policy issues, but some is directly relevant for us. The Choosing Wisely
campaign, organized by the Board of Internal Medicine, or the Institute of Medicine's September report about high quality cancer care in a time of crisis have helped focus top level attention on cancer costs. This matters to us individually, to our families, to our country as a whole. Of course, we all want the best possible care for cancer or any illness, but most of us also want care that makes sense and keeps the attention on our own goals and priorities.
