American healthcare is too profitable. It’s advantageous because Americans don’t take care of themselves and because there are too many companies between patients and doctors.
Under current law, national health spending is projected to grow at an average rate of 5.5 percent per year for 2018-27 and to reach nearly $6.0 trillion by 2027. However, given the poor health of Americans, I believe this projected spending is unrealistic.
Right now, voters are worried about inflation and rising fuel prices, but they ignore the imminent threats to their healthcare. American healthcare continues to be under assault, and unless we address these issues, a severe health issue could bankrupt families.
SUMMARY: Now that President Biden’s attempt to lower Medicare drug prices is dead, pharma can get back to business, and their business, of course, is making money. Using social media analytical tools, I was able to determine that there are a lot of outraged voters out there. Politics is broken and is too often about money, not what’s best for people.
SUMMARY: A new survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Purchaser Business Group on Health shows signs that corporate executives might be warming to the idea of government getting more involved to rein in the excesses of the healthcare system. It’s affecting their bottom lines, and they won’t stand for that. Big changes are coming.
QUICK READ: The American healthcare system is too damn profitable for any reasonable reforms. If we don’t address this issue head-on when will we?
QUICK READ: States lifting stay-at-home orders may not begin to bring patient volumes back for primary care physicians for several months, according to a new survey.
QUICK READ: Healthcare costs are a key part of the upcoming election but misinformation spreads quickly as we are learning with the Coronavirus. Yes, some drug prices are high but drug prices are only $.10 of every healthcare dollar spent. DTC marketers can’t continue as before; changes need to be made.
