i'm dying to see the two sides on this one
no, not hence. not hence! this is the absolute worst conclusion to take away from this article. mind you, we're in the middle of a pandemic wherein half of the population can't actually work.Hence, medical insurance should be compulsory for those who work and can afford it, for those who can't the insurance is provided by the state as safety net.

I don't need to tell you that ALL of that here would be FREE to the patient.
emphasis mineDocuments released last week in a federal bankruptcy court in New York show that the adviser was McKinsey & Company, the world’s most prestigious consulting firm. The 160 pages include emails and slides revealing new details about McKinsey’s advice to the Sackler family, Purdue’s billionaire owners, and the firm’s now notorious plan to “turbocharge” OxyContin sales at a time when opioid abuse had already killed hundreds of thousands of Americans.
In a 2017 presentation, according to the records, which were filed in court on behalf of multiple state attorneys general, McKinsey laid out several options to shore up sales. One was to give Purdue’s distributors a rebate for every OxyContin overdose attributable to pills they sold.
The presentation estimated how many customers of companies including CVS and Anthem might overdose. It projected that in 2019, for example, 2,484 CVS customers would either have an overdose or develop an opioid use disorder. A rebate of $14,810 per “event” meant that Purdue would pay CVS $36.8 million that year.
CVS and Anthem have recently been among McKinsey’s biggest clients. Press officers for the two companies said they had never received rebates from Purdue for customers who had overdosed on OxyContin.
Dentistry has been fundamentally changed wrt to PPE just as it was by HIV. Masks are most likely still going to be a thing post-vaccine.Not necessarily health care though I think somewhat related. I went to the dentist and she mentioned the masks they wear at work (which look like those blue masks you see everyone wear now) have gone up 3x the normal price since the pandemic from $18 to $54. I wonder if those prices are ever going down if the pandemic ends.
