A boost for public health plan

September 06, 2009

Re: "Grossman burn unit is poised to relocate," Sept. 2:

The impetus for the Grossman Burn Center to relocate sounds like a wonderful ad for proponents of the public option for health insurance. The owner of the facility, "with each hospital acquisition . . . canceled insurance contracts and collected higher reimbursements, while cutting staff and shortening patients' stays."

Sounds to me like the public option would help remind healthcare companies what their main reason for being in business should be.
