In the JAMA Viewpoint entitled, “The Role of Private Payers in Payment Reform,” published in the January 6, 2015, issue of JAMA (2015;313:25-26 doi:10.1001/jama.2014.15904), part of the basis for efforts to slow health care spending was reworded. On page 25, the last sentence of the second full paragraph should read, “Combined with the sizeable share of US health care spending deemed wasteful, slowing the rate of increase of health care costs becomes increasingly important.” Additionally, on page 26, the fourth complete sentence has been omitted. This article was corrected online.
