Obama vs. McCain: A look at the differences in health care reform policies

For those interested (and we all should be) in the differences between the health care policies of Obama and McCain I a sharing a recent article appearing in the August 21 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine.

The article is by Jonathan Oberlander, professor of health policy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill titled, "The Partisan Divide: The McCain and Obama Plans for U.S. Health Care Reform." It takes a look beneath the campaigns' rhetoric to discuss the substantive differences in the candidates' approaches to health care delivery as well as the relative costs and benefits of their two proposals.

Thanks to the AHLA physcian organization practice group for pointing out the article.
