There was an interesting discussion in the comments section on a post I wrote earlier this month on health care wondering how we can address the health care crisis we face in our country, especially when it comes our children.
When I wrote it, I wasn’t even thinking about how our warped health insurance system impacts doctors who practice in sub-sub-pediatric specialities and, consequently, what that means for the survival of children who have rare conditions and diseases.
Until the health struggles of a family I know hit me in the face.
If you’re still on the fence about whether there is some role the government ought to have in children’s health care and the treatment that should be easily available, especially in a large metropolitan area, please read this.
I hope this will at least begin to change your mind.
