Should doctors be paid to discuss end of life care with their patients? Medicare is proposing a rule change that would allow it, but it wasn't that long ago that the mere suggestion touched off a partisan political fire storm and cries that "death panels" would determine our fate.

We'll hear thoughts on the best approach on today's Be Well edition of the Sound of Ideas.
