    I remember my great surprise the first time I asked a woman when she was due and she gave me an exact mm/dd/yyyy. How can you be so precise I asked? Oh…..

    This story is a snapshot of a larger problem: The fee-for-service system
    incentivizes doctors to perform all sorts of expensive tests and
    procedures.

    Wrongo! The problem is that employer based insurance insulates the consumer from making informed decisions about their care.

    This has been a problem for a decade at least. Glad someone’s waking up to it.

    I think everyone has missed the point of C-section’s dominance: predictability for everybody concerned.
