High U.S. Medical Costs: “It is the fault of patients, wanting too much and shopping too carelessly”
Why are medical costs so high in the United States?
“It is the fault of patients, wanting too much and shopping too carelessly”
“It is the fault of physicians for giving into the wishes of those patients to keep the patient happy, protect against the patient's malpractice claims or provide additional income for the doctors”
“It is the fault of the insurance companies for giving into the wishes of those patients and the doctors’ orders”
..and who got the patients to want too much and shopping carelessly?
Why.. it’s the media and the TV doctor shows, it’s the pharmaceutical companies, it’s the Internet medical sites, it’s the patient's neighbor who had this and this done for this and this condition. And it is the doctors who give in to their patient's uneducated demands for this and that and add their own self-interest to the mix.
How can we begin to cut the costs of medical care in the United States?
Educate the patient to want less and shop more carefully.
Enough said. Or do you have an argument with this? ..Maurice.
