The Center for Regulatory Effectiveness (TheCRE.com) has analyzed a study published in Health Affairs which asserts that health insurance companies have insufficient leverage when negotiating with healthcare providers. The study has been discussed in Forbes and other major publications.
CRE concludes that the said study violates the Data Quality Act (DQA) and therefore cannot be used by any federal agency. In that the designation as being DQA-non compliant virtually renders the said study useless, CRE is inviting members of the public to review the study attached below and comment on its findings using the Leave a Reply function below.
CRE has advised the US Federal Trade Commission of its findings in the attached letter.
