Providers give rationing substantial support.Mod Healthc. 1991 May 13; 21(19):34.MH
Rationing healthcare services to help control soaring medical costs gets more support from providers than from consumers or employers, a recent survey of consumers, business executives and healthcare professionals shows. When asked whether healthcare should be rationed, 57% of the hospital chief executive officers and 46% of the physicians said "yes". But only 29% of the employers and 16% of the consumers agreed.
