The healthcare industry is broken. The doctors are still the same caliber, but they don’t have power to treat patients the way they should be treated. The insurance companies control everything.
From a friend’s experience, one can’t even get help anymore unless you have health insurance, even if the injury sustained was the fault of someone else (in this case a car accident). This includes if you have a police report and the insurance of the responsible person (other driver). Endless phone calls, endless walls to hit. It’s not the fault of the doctors, necessarily. They just want to make sure they get paid. Unfortunately, this puts the patient at risk for more problems because the insurance doesn’t always cooperate.
The government in the US is also broken. I’m not a political person, but things MUST change if America is to survive.
Okay, *stepping down from podium* that is all. Thanks for listening.
