Chernew ME, Pany MJ. (2021-07-20). Backstop Price Caps in Commercial Health Care Markets—Reply. jamanetwork.com In Reply Mr Lusk and Dr McDevitt argue that backstop price caps on the highest of health care prices would be "a blunt instrument for restraining prices." Their assessment is based on 2 misperceptions of the caps we discussed in our recent Viewpoint. First, the approach we outlined would not cut prices equally across the board for all services. On the contrary, backstop price caps are intended to be service specific, so that the amount trimmed depends on the amount by which the price for a specific service exceeds the cap. By design, backstop price caps would apply only to the highest prices within each service.
