Dr. David Hyman


ENCORE: How to Overhaul Our Costly and Inefficient Health Care System, Part 1
August 25, 2020
Dr. David Hyman, co-author of “Overcharged: Why Americans Pay Too Much for Healthcare,” offers proposals for how to overhaul a costly and inefficient health care system. Why do Americans pay so much for health care that other nations achieve with lower costs? What’s wrong with proposals for “universal health care” on the single-payer model that other advanced countries embrace? Why does Dr. Hyman refer to Medicare as a “Pyramid Scheme” that redistributes wealth from poorer younger Americans to the relatively affluent elderly? How do doctors game the system? Why is Medicaid a misguided solution for providing health care to the disadvantaged? Why do drugs cost so much? How do medical specialty societies guard their turf? How will Dr. Hyman’s proposed reforms expand choice and make medicine more affordable? Click HERE for part 2.
