In this episode of KHN’s “What the Health?” Julie Rovner of Kaiser Health News, Alice Ollstein of Talking Points Memo, Joanne Kenen of Politico and Paige Winfield Cunningham of The Washington Post discuss the problems that are making congressional efforts to pass legislation to stabilize the individual insurance market a long shot. They also discuss a new study showing that while U.S. residents use about the same amount of health services as people in other wealthy countries, Americans pay far higher prices for those services. Plus, for extra credit, the panelists offer their favorite health policy stories of the week.
