This is interesting: Ohio law requires health insurers to publish a “list of the top 20% of services based on use” as well as how much each insured has to pay for each of them.

Last year, that top 20% of health care services covered by Anthem were:

■ Primary care office visits
■ Lab and Pathology services

To be frank, this surprised me: I would have bet money that prescription med costs would have broken into the top two.

Which is not to say that they didn’t play a major role, but apparently far less than primary care and lab services. Which is also, perhaps, a decent argument in favor of Direct Primary Care.

We shall see.
