Correction To Daily Report, Mar. 15
In the March 15 Morning Edition, "Economists, Dems Differ On Who's To Blame For Insurers' Rate Hikes," KHN omitted a word in a summary of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel coverage. It should have read as follows: "Democrats assailed health insurers for hiking rates in recent weeks to gain popular momentum for their health overhaul, but health economists say insurers did not cause high health costs, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The economists 'contend that insurance companies, while often meriting criticism for their practices, aren't to blame for high health care costs.'"
