Jason Shafrin hosted the Super Bowl edition of the Health Wonk Review today – be sure to check it out. I think my favorite entry in this edition is from Roy Poses at Health Care Renewal. If you pay attention to healthcare headlines, you’ve probably seen the headlines about the “miracle” cure for Hepatitis C. Maybe some stories about the personal experiences of people whose lives have been transformed significantly for the better by several weeks of pills that cost nearly $100,000 per patient for the full treatment. No doubt, there are some compelling stories out there. But before you make up your mind, read Dr. Poses’ article. As always, he digs past hype and conflicted interests to root out the important details.
