    Health Affairs Blog:  Over the next decade I believe we are going to see a major transformation of American medicine. It won't be the kind of transformation that is normally discussed at health care conferences and at inside-the-Beltway briefings.

Instead, what I envision is a large migration of patients and doctors, and facilities and services out of the third-party payer system.

Alan Simpson, R-Wyo., and former Clinton White House aide Erskine Bowles? Or will he punt?
