Why Healthcare Is Sick

Why Healthcare Is Sick

Elisabeth Rosenthal, a former ER physician, veteran health reporter and current editor-in-chief of Kaiser Health News, joins us to discuss her book, An American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back. Rosenthal reveals how the current medical system values profits over patients, and why politicians have little say in reducing costs. She also offers advice to consumers so that they can better navigate the system.
