with David Brancaccio

Marketplace Morning Report for Wednesday June 4, 2014

The Health Privacy Summit kicks off Wednesday morning in DC. Just this week, the federal government released more health data as the drum beat for access to more information gets louder.

We examine the difference in rates and the reasons.
