I'm a little behind on things this week — struggling with two ailments while trying to get a little work done has sapped my energy — so I'm just getting to the latest edition of Health Wonk Review at Managed Care Matters.
This time out, it's a wide-ranging compendium of views on health-care reform, including my own post on retail clinics, which author Joe Paduda links in a flattering way to the eloquent DrRich's discourse on the death of the primary care physician.
I particularly like Paduda's own solution for reform, which goes further than any proposal being considered in Washington now — not "Medicare for All" but Veterans Administration health care for all. Paduda does a good job of refuting the anti-reformers' assertion that the government can't do anything right (which, oddly enough, seems to be promulgated largely by people who were staunch supporters of the government for the past eight years).
It's definitely worth taking a look.
