Market discipline can eliminate waste, but only if consumers have an incentive to get their health services from cost-effective systems that deliver higher-quality care at a lower price. Policymakers must change the tax treatment of job-based insurance, reform Medicare, and adjust health savings account rules to ensure consumers can reduce their costs by opting to get their care through efficient managed care arrangements.
