Description
The healthcare system is basically a lucrative game of tug-of-war among players – and the winner reaps a trillion dollar pot of gold. But is it a fair game? David explores the monstrous “fee-for service system” with Dr. Vivian Lee. Then, Dr. Jill Gross joins David to explore how the results can lead to a total system breakdown.     Resources from the episode: Pick up your own copy of Dr. Lee’s book, The Long Fix: Solving America's Health Care Crisis with Strategies that Work for Everyone – https://wwnorton.com/books/9781324006671  Read more about the “fee-for-service monster” in Dr. Lee’s STAT article – https://www.statnews.com/2020/06/12/fee-for-service-is-a-terrible-way-to-pay-for-health-care-try-a-subscription-model-instead/    Keep up with David on twitter @CHIDavidSmith.    Have you been hit with a surprise bill or had an infuriating run-in with the health care system?
