||The U.S. spends twice as much per person on health care as the average industrialized nation, yet its outcomes are often worse. The reason? The U.S. is the only developed country that has turned medicine into a largely unregulated, for-profit enterprise. Inspired by Maggie Mahar's acclaimed book, Money-Driven Medicine: The Real Reason Health Care Costs So Much, this program offers a behind-the-scenes look at America's .6 trillion health care system, how it went wrong, and what it will take to fix it. With commentary from frustrated doctors and outraged patients, the video alerts Americans that universal coverage is just the first step in a long and arduous battle for comprehensive reform.
