Most ObamaCare supporters have backed away from previous claims that more government control of healthcare will somehow lower costs. That’s a start, but there is clearly more work to be done.
Kentucky has a bipartisan problem that, if addressed, could introduce greater competition into healthcare and lower costs.
Kentucky needs to repeal its Certificate of Need program.
Certificate of Need limits healthcare competition by requiring providers to apply to the state for permission to supply services. More services equals more competition, which equals lower prices. Any questions?
