Come share your perspective and experiences on health care. Learn how to get just-right health care.
Until recently, most people were concerned about getting too little health care. But a new problem has crept upon us in recent decades: too much health care. This means too many tests, procedures, and services that don't help and can harm. We are overdosing on health care.
Overuse and overspending in health care affect our personal well-being and the larger economy. They deprive our country of resources for other priorities like education, transportation, research, community safety, and human services.
