How civilized countries provide health care

5 myths about health care around the world” by T.R. Reid in the Washington Post. He can also be heard talking about his forthcoming book “The Healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care” in a Fresh Air interview. It’s a great story because he traveled around the world going through the process in each country of trying to get treatment for a problem shoulder, so he’s not talking health care policy, but the health care realities as we all experience them when we call our HMOs. Quite informative. The kind of reporting that would really elevate the health care debate in this country.

Update: Nice review and summary on Daily Kos.
