Healthcare Costs Video

In all the crazy discussions that are happening about healthcare, it’s always frustrating to me that so few of them talk about healthcare costs. Politicians are talking a lot about healthcare insurance and coverage. Those in healthcare IT talk about meaningful use, MACRA, and over regulation. No doubt there are challenges associated with insurance coverage and with health IT regulation. However, none of them will move the needle on how much healthcare is costing this nation.

Sometimes it takes a little bit of humor to illustrate the point and that’s what this video from Adam Ruins Everything does with healthcare costs:

Not exactly a Fun Friday video like we usually do, but kind of. The saddest part of this video though is near the end when she asks what can be done to fix the problem and he says nothing. Rolling back healthcare costs is the real issue with healthcare today and there are a lot of entrenched interests that want nothing to do with it.
