A new campaign has nine medical societies making recommendations against dozens of unnecessary medical tests in order to cut costs and avoid anxiety and risky follow-up procedures in patients. Mark Pauly believes that insured patients might not question the need for tests that they are not paying for directly. He says “the way to get them to do it is to give them a stake in the outcome.”
