As the universal healthcare rhetoric heats up on Capitol Hill, it’s time someone asks, “What does ‘Medicare for all’ actually mean?” Ed and Scott discuss how a single-payer system could impact the patient, employers, health plans and even the doctor.
In this episode Ed’s “angry old man” persona makes an appearance as he and Scott run through the ups and downs of the various proposals and what it might do to health care quality and innovation in the US. And Ed might need a cardiologist after he hears what it could cost. This episode has us all wondering, is it time to finally just throw Ed off that cliff they talked about in episode one?
