I’m on NPR’s Marketplace today

NPR’s Marketplace has a story today on daily deal sites for health care. I’m quoted.

The story is drawn from a longer piece on NPR’s Dallas station, KERA.

My view: deal sites are an interesting phenomenon but are not likely to play a major role in health care cost containment or price transparency. The deals are and will likely remain confined to ancillary providers such as dentists, vision care, and cosmetic dermatology.
