Health Matters salutes Kentucky Derby winner Always Dreaming with a show about our dreams. We dream about affordable healthcare, lifting the curse of lung cancer from our state, and creating a healthy world for our children. Unfortunately, getting there will be difficult. In this policy-heavy show, we discuss insurance markets, prescription drug price reform, high deductible plans, and MACRA, new legislation which may change the way we deliver healthcare.
Tip: According to Dr. Elizabeth Rosenthal’s new book, “An American Sickness”, there is no incentive to lower costs in healthcare. “Prices will rise to whatever the market will bear”.
