  1. Doctor’s prognosis: American-style health care a nightmare

 

 

By Inge De Becker, M.D.

The Chronicle Herald (Halifax, Nova Scotia), Aug. 26, 2014

 

As a Canadian physician who now lives south of the 49th parallel, I’m alarmed that Canada’s publicly financed national health-care system is once again under attack

  1. Avalere study of proposed copper plans

Comment:

By Don McCanne, MD

 

 

One of the major problems with the Affordable Care Act is that it has established underinsurance as a new standard. It was bad enough when the decision was made to allow insurers to offer products that covered an average of only 60 percent of estimated health care costs, but now there is a serious proposal to reduce that to 50 percent. What does this do?

  1. Have insurers found new ways to avoid the sick?

 

By Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar and Tom Murphy
