WASHINGTON (AP) -- The government will be charging a new fee to health insurance plans next year for research to see which drugs, tests and treatments work best.
The fee is a little-known provision of President Barack Obama's health care law. The goal of the research is to answer basic questions like whether a new prescription drug advertised on TV actually works better than an old generic that costs much less.
