Let us just say this, Our administration, is not very good at administrating. Congress is not trained to make judgment's on health care. Those decisions should be supervised by somebody who is qualified in the field of medicine, not by Congress, HMO's, or insurance companies where the bottom line is more important then the patients bottom. Dr. Anderson, the Chief of Staff at Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas. is an expert on the subject. His hospital is a provider of health care to those with no insurance in this area. Texas is a Big State, and it has more uninsured Americans than any other. Not something to be proud of, or brag about, but a fact never the less. Thousands of these people, Homeless, indigent, working poor, etc. pass through there every day. From all over the state. They all get taken care of, but the Hospital is often, quite frankly overwhelmed by the load. The Good Dr. Spoke on PBS, begging for help and relief. He would be a good counsel along with a few others, nurses among them, to set up a board to oversee the care of Medicare, Medicaid, and other Government sponsored or assisted health care. We pay more for less than any nation on earth, Why?? It does not make sense.
Well said. There has to be a way to provide incentives to for health care providers and ins. co.s for quality care. I think HMO's were intended to do that,but they didn't work. Ins. Co's have short term bottom line viewpoints so the y concentrate on minimizing immediate expenses and try to shortchange patients and make the paper pro cess d ifficult for p roviders an d patients.
