This article should be readable by everyone.
But if not, the gist is the same as other reports on the shameful method of testing and treating Americans in the worst pandemic since 1918.
NYT is asking readers to send in medical bills that have Coronavirus tests or treatments. The variety so far is amazing. From a few hundred to six thousand for a test that is supposed to be covered by either insurance or the government.
And we have not really seen the impact of huge treatment bills and unemployed, uninsured patients.
We had a hugely complicated and ridiculously expensive, opaque system before the virus. This crisis has peeled back a scab that should get the attention of all Americans.
Affordable healthcare for all Americans is critical in a pandemic. We don’t have that.
To me, there should be no surprise that we lead the world in infections and deaths. And that the rest of the world is looking at the leader of the free world, the largest economy, the biggest military, and ssking “WTF is going on?”.
