Healthcare Access

C04E7BA9-033F-4ABB-889A-B977C5E91B59My daughter is sick today so my world is on hold…
She was fortunate enough to see a physician and start treatment the same day, but it took some phone calls to old friends and persuading. And she HAS health insurance!
We are the only industrialized nation not to have nationalized health care. We spend over $3 Trillion annually on healthcare, but where is that money going? Hard to find good data, but one government report several years ago suggested that only 1/3 goes to actual patient care. There are layers of legal and administrative bureaucracy that continue to choke the system. We need to fix healthcare! We have the right resources available, but are they permissible??
