Massachusetts Blues CEO touts bipartisan path to control costs

The CEO of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts remains convinced the healthcare industry can rein in costs in a way that pleases both political parties, The Boston Globe reported. According to the Globe, Andrew Dreyfus may be the last healthcare reform optimist who talks to members of Congress who won't talk to each other. His recent Washington huddles about controlling healthcare costs involved Republican Sens. Tom Coburn (Okla.) and Lamar Alexander (Tenn.) as well as Democratic Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.) and Ron Wyden (Ore.). He also sends his "we make it work; you can, too" message to leaders in other states. Article
