We're All in This Together: The Country Watches Vermont Health Care
Production Date: 10/24/2011
Is Vermont moving too fast with health care reform? Dr. Betty Keller, MD, of St. Johnsbury, VT interviews UVM Ecological Economics professor Dr. Joshua Farley, PhD, and his father, Dr. Eugene Farley, MD, Professor Emeritus in Family Medicine at the University of Wisconsin, about Vermont's new health care bill, Act 48. The nation is watching Vermont as our state attempts to improve access, improve outcomes, and reduce cost through a universal, unified health care system. Dr. Eugene Farley provides historical context and professional context, as a physician who started practicing before we had Medicare and before Family Practice was founded, when access was already challenging but costs were not so high. Dr. Joshua Farley speaks about rationing, waiting times, and lack of choice of provider in America now.
