ABSTRACT
The author reflects on health care financing in Indiana. He discusses that tax-favored treatment of employer-financed health-insurance benefits costs the federal government treasury more than it spends on Medicare. He added that it encourages the proliferation of insurance plans that covers health care spending since spending by the plan is not taxed. Furthermore, he believes that long-term challenge to finance publicly funded health care requires a complete revamp of these unmanageable systems.
