Health Care Costs Included in Everything You Buy

NORFOLK- Parts of the federal health care reform act are already in place - others will take effect over the next two years. Faith Regional Health Services President and CEO Jim Sinek says one thing driving health care reform are problems with the Medicare and Medicaid systems. The other driving factor is the impact of health care costs on the U.S. economy. Sinek says health care costs are included in everything we buy. Sinek says it is hard for American companies to compete globally with countries with less expensive health care costs, or health care costs that are not associated with employment. Sinek will discuss health care reform all this week, Monday through Friday, at 7:45 on WJAG's Morning Coffee.
