Description - Flatlined by
In ""Flatlined"", Guy L. Clifton examines the causes and consequences of the breakdown of American health care, the plight of millions of uninsured families, and the vicious cycle of high prices and low-quality treatment. Filled with first-hand accounts, the book shows how the fee-for-service method of paying doctors and hospitals, and the lack of standards of medical practice result in enough medical waste to cover the uninsured seven times.
