I saw this as well, but always appreciate people forwarding good
information on. It's hard to stay on top of everything. This is a troubling reality, that costs would increase significantly, with no coinciding increase in health. The one aspect of health that did improve in this study is depression. The researchers who conducted the study want to delve deeper into that data and see if they can determine what the operative factors were in that significant finding. My guess is that the ability to access care without fear of financial consequences removes a sense of helplessness-a major symptom of depression. Dana On 1/3/14 6:45 PM, "Ken Ivory"
