What Subscribers Say About Us
"I have been a subscriber to HealthINFLATION News since 1992 and am as enthusiastic today as I was when I received my first issue. During my years at Kaiser Permanente I found HealthINFLATION News an invaluable source (and the only source available) covering the broad spectrum of healthcare inflation throughout the United States. During my tenure on the Board of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco I was required to report monthly on the status of healthcare inflation to the full board of Governors of the Bank. HealthINFLATION News was my primary source of data. I know of no other source with the breadth and currency of your newsletter. Keep up the good work."
