We’ve become so obsessed with mandates, exchanges and medical-loss ratios that we’re starting to lose sight of the forest for the trees. And we’re certainly not paying attention to all the other predators lurking behind every shadow. Now I realize those of us in the media are as complicit as anyone in this suffocating coverage. (If it bleeds, it leads, right?) In any given month, health reform in some shape or form gobbles up as many pages as any other single topic in this magazine.
