On The Record (with daily recap)

  • Kaiser: Medicare Advantage fact sheet, Nov. 2011

Today in TIE: Reflex, Austin makes the case for needing traditional and private Medicare plans and brings us another edition of reading list, Don looks at spending trends by age at death, Aaron wonders if you really need that MRI and has some good news on child insurance coverage rates, while Kevin previews the Sherman anti-trust litigation brought by large retailers v. Teva and Wyeth.

Happy Friday!
