Choice is not the only issue; many work in businesses that do not offer insurance. Those who have lost their jobs find COBRA too expensive as well.... Baby boomers won't put as much strain on the health care system as originally feared, according to a new report by AARP.

The baby boomer demand for long-term care services is 20 to 30 years off.... A new accreditation program will seek to guard the rights and safety of participants in clinical trials. The Partnership for Human Research Protection is a joint effort of the National Committee for Quality Assurance and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations. The standards will be made final in April and reviews will then begin.
