This article examines the usual explanations for high U.S. health care costs, including medical technology, physician spending, patient choices and others. It then looks at the Affordable Care Act and other regulatory ideas to slow and better rationalize the high costs of the American system, describing and commenting on the good ideas in the ACA, including new organizational models, new centers to give medicine an evidence-based approach, and government powers such as the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) that aim to slow Medicare cost increases.
