Reality check: A new drug has emerged for your health condition, and after the doctor sample has run out, the prescription price tag is 25% of your monthly income; on discharge, your hospital doctor forces you to go to a “skilled nursing facility” instead of home, and you’re still sick; a letter arrives in the mail increasing your monthly health premiums and decreasing your coverage…again.
Does this make sense? It does when it is spelled “cents.”
Most industrialized countries around the world have minimized healthcare costs, yet still balance their budget. Why can’t our country do the same?
