Rural Healthcare is in CRISIS. Here's how to solve it.

Our rural communities are hurting. Dr. Abdul El-Sayed explores the healthcare crisis in rural America, and offers 3 solutions: Medicare for All, investing in state and local hospitals, and expanding telehealth. He dives into how each of these solutions would impact our rural communities, and combat the effects of hospital consolidation.

How much of getting Medicare for all is a state problem and how much is a federal problem? I mean if you had a Congress that was for it, how many states would have to be for it, or, do many have to be, can it be done completely from the federal level?

I believe Medicare was created at the federal level..can Medicare for all be done that way too?

I believe the health insurance system in the United States is criminal.

I imagine some of you do, too.

I made a new subreddit to talk about how criminal this system is.

Come join the fun

Insurance can’t quote med price estimates for their own plans??

In yet more evidence of the broken American healthcare system, turns out no one is able to tell us how much a specific medication would cost unless we’re actively enrolled in the plan, including both the insurance carrier themselves (Anthem) and the pharmacy provider they work with (CVS Caremark).

My wife is prescribed Vyvanse for ADHD, she’s tried other medications and none of them work nearly as well for her. Vyvanse, even the generic brands, is incredibly expensive without insurance coverage (goodRx helps but still $80/month). I’m considering a job offer but there are some significant differences in the available health plans there vs what I have now, and this + other potential medication costs add up to be a non-trivial factor in whether or not the offered compensation will be sufficient.

And yet, speaking on the phone with the insurance representative and the pharmacy provider themselves, no one is able to say how much a medication will cost under a plan in which I’m not enrolled. WHAT??!?

If goodRx can figure it out, what’s the problem here!!?!
