What Price Wellness?

Doug Kaufmann

CNN’s health segment yesterday had me dumbfounded.  I really didn’t know that 62% of American bankruptcies are due to medical bills!  That’s almost 2 out of three families that go broke do so because the care they got was so expensive.  Of those going bankrupt, an astounding 75% had medical insurance! 

In defense of the medical system, many are alive because of medical intervention, but I know that many of these cases are hospital billings for loved ones that died while under their care.  How must they feel with impending bankruptcy and the loss of a loved one? ?  This gets to the core of the issue and that is, what should we do about this broken system?  Apparently health insurance is not the answer! Of course, I have a thought, but I’d love to hear yours.
