You Get What You Pay For

"You get what you pay for" does not apply to health care. Unlike other markets, paying more for health care services rarely result in higher quality. For example, facilities with the highest costs for medical services may provide low quality care, and, conversely, high-quality facilities may charge the lowest fees for care. High costs of care can also be driven by the results of poor quality care, such as hospital re-admissions, preventable infections, and complications resulting from poor chronic-condition management.
