IPAB stands for Independent Payment Advisory Board. The board of 15 who will decide if you get the medicine you need or how much the government should pay Drs and hospitals who treat medicare patients (as well as anyone else). These are the people who will decide if the drugs we have worked for so many years to find cures for or retard disease (not to mention spent billions on) are worth all that time and money.
This panel will not be sending out personal death notices but they will be the cause of some deaths. is there a difference?
Should 15 people of Obamas choice be in charge of your (or anyones)health and well being, period?
