Today’s episode of the Health Care News Podcast explores the intersection of a subject we all care about–health care for the elderly and poor–and a subject we all have encountered even if we haven’t realized it–unintended consequences.
Dr. Richard Armstrong, treasurer of the Docs4PatientCare Foundation, joined Heartland Research Fellow and Managing Editor Michael Hamilton to explain how Medicare and Medicaid–two government-run, taxpayer-funded health care programs–inadvertently obstruct patients from accessing, and doctors from providing, the best possible care. Tune in until the end, when Armstrong and Hamilton discuss a cutting-edge, free-market solution gaining traction in 15 states and counting: direct primary care.
