Abstract

This publication concerns the re-valuing of medical waste and assets in terms of United States government healthcare spending, acknowledging further that the typical fee for service practices are instruments in medical fraud and overspending, offering the public some solutions on how to reduce their own medical cost. Furthermore, this shines a light on the institutions of accountable care organizations and how they have the potential to save billions of dollars in US taxpayer monies.
