This is what happens when reimbursement is skewed towards specialists and procedures and away from primary care. People in need of mental services (which is of course horribly not reimbursed) are left dying in the waiting room while staff and security mosy on by.
I’m sorry but these policies stem from the very top. Bush and his lackeys did absolutely nothing to even start to solve our healthcare crisis. He turned a blind eye to damn near everything in healthcare that could benefit patients because it would have taken money away from the AHA, the AMA, and the insurance industry.
It’s no wonder the Insurance Industry is throwing money at Obama. They’re hoping he’ll federally mandate insurance and have one huge opportunity for record profitability before they go bankrupt in 10 years because they can’t continue to ask individuals and employers to doulbe what they pay for insurance every 6 years.
