U.S. Profit-Centered Healthcare

The U.S. is the only advanced country that prioritizes profit over healthcare access. Retired Emergency Medicine Specialist Dr. Vincent Markovchick remarks that the U.S. has the costliest health insurance model, with numerous segments of the economy milking large profits. Ever larger shareholder profits are sought by venture capitalist investor-owned health groups. Those seeking healthcare run the risk of out-of-network "surprise billing" by investor-owned free-standing emergency rooms, doctor groups, hospice centers, emergency air rescue groups, etc. Even media took in $5.2 billion in a single year for pharmaceutical ads, motivation to defend the status quo. Groups making large profits from healthcare are lining up against Medicare-for-All in order to protect their profits.
