Abstract
Rising health care costs have led policymakers to look at ways to assure the appropriateness of care. But attempts to control spending on physician services by either reducing price or limiting utilization may be ineffective due to backward bending supply. In seeking further limits on physician spending, policymakers will have to consider this possibility.
