Re: Society Should Let Uninsured Patient Die
How does the same situation work WITHOUT Obamacare? It's not some bureaucrat making the decision, it's an insurance company.... with a profit agenda. I fail to see the difference in moral hazard here. Insurance companies have utilization review... but they are far less likely to consider what two years of additional life might mean to the patient AND the family.
