PostSubject: Patients are just a financial instrument   Mon Nov 21, 2016 8:21 pm

Mark Vonnegut, in "Just Like Someone Without Mental Illness Only More So", wrote:
When I ask pharmaceutical salespeople what a new drug costs, they hasten to reassure me that it's covered by insurance and will only cost the patient a ten- or twenty-dollar copay.  Both the medical insurers and the drug companies... have, to a large extent, subverted the efforts of hospitals and other providers to care for the sick.  The sick have been converted into financial instruments whereby large amounts of money are transferred from one corporation to another.
