GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Obama coaxes states to change with school dollars
Wednesday night on Nightly News Tom Brokaw continued his reporting along Highway 50 from Grand Junction. Tom's report says Grand Junction is a place where for the most part health care works and it's one of the stories that brought him to the Western Slope.
Brokaw's story includes information on how Grand Junction's residents have access to high quality care at some of the lowest average costs in the United States, including Medicare. He focuses on how the Grand Junction medical community agreed more than 30 years ago to an innovative arrangement: regular review of patient charts and hospital practices, to root out problems and cost overruns. Brokaw will also report they also agreed to be paid the same, whether they saw Medicare, Medicaid or privately insured patients.
The story aired on Nightly News on KKCO NBC 11 News at 5 p.m.
