Indiana lawmakers looking at state’s high health care costs

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana lawmakers are calling the state’s high health care costs an economic development problem.

The Journal Gazette reports Indiana currently ranks highest in prices paid to hospitals by private health insurance plans, but the problem is not the actual cost or charge of a procedure — it is ultimately what individuals are paying after insurance.
