Rep. Paul Ryan Discussed Medical Innovation with Paul Howard

November 16, 2011 | Podcast

Representative Paul Ryan talks to the Manhattan Institute's Paul Howard about the future of innovation in the face of Obamacare and the Independent Payment Advisory Board.

For providers in an [Independent Payment Advisory Board] price-controlled system, they're really just trying to pay their hostage takers to shoot them last, and that simply won't work. Providers are beginning to realize this. They're beginning to realize that hard-core price controls don't pay them based on quality. Even if they innovate, even if they work hard, even if they increase productivity, they're paid the same as anybody else who doesn't do that. They're not being rewarded in the way the market would reward them for [innovation].
