    DIGESTStudy: Doc fees major factor in

    health costs

    WASHINGTON (NY Times) Doctors are paid higher fees in the United States than in several other countries, and this is a major factor in the nations higher overall cost of health care, says a new study by two Columbia University professors, one of whom is now a top health offi cial in the Obama administration.

    American primary care and orthopedic physicians are paid more for each ser-vice than are their counter-parts in Australia, Canada, France, Germany and the United Kingdom, said the study, by Sherry A. Glied, an assistant secretary of health and human services, and Miriam J. Laugesen, an assistant professor of health policy at Columbia.

    The study, being pub-lished Thursday in the jour-nal Health Affairs, found that the incomes of primary care doctors and orthopedic surgeons were substantially higher in the United States than in other countries. Moreover, it said, the dif-ference results mainly from higher fees, not from higher costs of the doctors medical practice, a larger number or volume of services or higher medical school tuition.

    Such higher fees are driv-ing the higher spending on doctors services, the study concluded.

    RICHMOND, Va. (NY Times) A day after throwing down the gauntlet before Congress, President Obama took his $447 billion jobs plan on the road on Friday, exhorting college students here to contact their lawmakers, by carrier pigeon if nec-essary, to pass his legislation.

    I want you to call, I want you to e-mail, I want you to tweet, I want you to fax, I want you to visit, I want you to Facebook,

    send a carrier pigeon, Mr. Obama said to a raucous crowd of nearly 9,000 on the lush, red-brick campus of the University of Rich-mond.

    I want you to tell your congressperson, The time for gridlock and games is over; the time for action is now, said the presi-dent, who appeared energized after his Thursday address to Congress.

    This was the fi rst salvo in what the

    White House says will be a sustained cam-paign by the president to sell the public on the tax cuts and spending in his package raising pressure on Republicans in the House to go along with at least some of the measures.

    On Tuesday, the president plans to visit Columbus, Ohio, the political backyard of House Speaker John A. Boehner, and White House offi cials promise further trips.

    (NY Times) As overfl owing rivers continued to tumble into roadways and neighborhoods across the Northeast, counties entered what one government offi cial called triage mode on Friday: assessing the damage wrought by what some meteorolo-gists have called a once-in-a-gen-eration fl ood.

    In the Binghamton, N.Y., area, where 20,000 residents were ordered to evacuate on Thursday as the Susquehanna rose 11 feet above fl ood level, Broome County

    emergency personnel planned to inspect areas of the city they had been unable to reach the day before.

    Though the river had receded by late Thursday, it was unclear when water levels would dip below the fl ood stage. Residents have been instructed to boil water before consuming it, to avoid pos-sible contamination. The citys location between two fl ooding rivers, the Susquehanna and the Chenango, left it particularly vul-nerable.

    TRIPOLI, Libya (NY Times) Libyan rebels began what they called full-scale attacks to subdue the loyalist holdouts of Bani Walid and Surt on Friday night, breaking their own dead-line for surrender after taking enemy fi re.

    Its full steam ahead right now, said Abdulrahman Busin, a spokesman for the rebel military. Some rebels were reported to be inside of Bani Walid, a small city 90 miles southeast of the capital. The attack on Surt, one of Libyas larger cities, had just begun and the rebels were still on the outskirts, Mr. Busin said.

    Rebel offi cials said they opened the campaign on Bani Walid early after peace negotiations failed and loyalist forces opened fi re on rebel positions. The two sides were said to be fi ghting outside the city and in close-quarters, street-to-street fi ghting inside, The Associated Press reported, citing rebel offi cials.
