    HMOs: The Health Care of the Beast Many people are concerned about rising health care costs. In reaction to this, some individuals and companies are gravitating toward the assumed lower prices of Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) health plans. HMOs spend billions of dollars each year advertising their low cost services. While these savings look good on paper, there are many pages of small print.

    Proponents of mandatory helmet laws often raise the issue of ‘public burden’. They claim that injuries from unprotected riders cost the public because insurance rates go up and taxpayers are forced to bear the cost of caring for uninsured riders. I examine this argument critically with the aim of showing that it is faulty. Much of the available data clearly shows that fatalities and injuries are reduced for helmet wearers – a worthy goal in itself – but fail to make the leap to demonstrate public burden. Unfortunately for my argument, little data exists on the costs related to injuries.
