According to new research published in Health Affairs, hospital prices have outpaced physician prices between 2007 and 2014. The researchers have added that hospital portion of the prices included almost 64 and 84 percent of the total cost in four hospital based procedures like knee replacement and cesarean section etc. Even though the exact reason behind this discrepancy is unknown, the researchers have recommended some kind of legislative action to reduce hospital price growth.
