Universal Health Care On The Way

Dr. Davis Liu, author of the book Stay Healthy, Live Longer, Spend Wisely believes universal health care, where all Americans are guaranteed treatment, is on the way.

But Liu, my guest today on News Talk Online on Paltalk.com, says it will be year's in the making. And he says it will likely be a hybrid system, private-public, rather than one run by the government, which would, he argues, be unwise.

"Americans want everyone covered," Liu says. "The question is, what will it look like?"

Liu says the money is there to ensure coverage for all.

"We spend more than any other nation in the world per capita (on health care)," he said.

He says the problem is a critical one. Because some 47 million people in the United States lack health care.

Good show again Gary, Dr. Liu's comments were thought provoking. I have to agree there needs to be some sort of revision of the Health care system, likely being a hybrid of sorts. My suggestion of "streamling" would also include pharmaceutical care. A newtork specifically set up to prevent numerous dublications of & or abuse of prescriptions, errors, overdosage, and prevent adverse reactions between medications.
