During my last 25 years of working as a Physical Therapist, I’ve watched the healthcare system evolve from a system with a primary focus on healthcare to a primary focus on producing corporate profits. Every time I start to write a blog on this subject, it gets so long and convoluted that the message gets lost so I’ve decided to approach this with a series of blogs in a stepwise manner. I’d love to have you join in and share your opinions as we wind through this complex issue. While I love facts,, I am not interested in political opinions. This blog explicitly regards the healthcare cost crisis the United States is facing, and not meant to be a political venting ground so please share facts only. I’m not suggesting you can’t show who’s responsible for those facts, but the hope is to figure out where all this money is going.
See my next blog for an intro to some basic facts about our system.
