Not much cost control
No, there isn't much cost control in the bill other than the public option. What is needed, perhaps next year, is significant financial incentives to create more vertically integrated providers like Kaiser and Geissinger.
Hospitals, insurance companies, tertiary and primary providers need to work off one balance sheet so investment in less expensive care pays off. This is essentially global budgeting in the private sector.
