Another Reason Why Medical Costs Are High?




A Fort Lauderdale doctor is just one of a large group of medical device makers accused of paying kickbacks to surgeons to implant their highly profitable devices in patients, according to the Kaiser Health News.

There is a reason beyond my interest in medical news that I am running a link to this article. The piece is co-authored by a veteran reporter Fred Schulte.

Schulte and his wife Jenni Bergal are two top investigative journalists I worked with at the Sun-Sentinel before they moved to Washington, D.C. We remain close friends and I continue to follow their articles.

So for those who are interested in one alleged cause of high medical costs, the link is here.
