Oprah Winfrey Talks To Michael Moore About Sicko And Health Care Insurance Industry

Oprah Winfrey Talks To Michael Moore About Sicko And Health Care Insurance Industry

Karen Ignagni

(Best Syndication) Michael Moore visited Oprah Winfrey on Thursday to talk about the health insurance industry. His movie Sicko (See Movie Trailer and videos below) has stirred a debate, and even Oprah admitted that it opened her eyes to the issue. The movie is a warning to the vast majority of Americans who believe they are protected because they have health insurance. The movie does not concern the 50 million without coverage.

Oprah asked a question that she wanted everyone to answer. She asked “Should the son of a gas station attendant have the same health coverage as the son of a CEO?” She told her audience “You need to see this movie”! When she saw the film, it completely changed the way she looked at health care.

Hillary Will Force Everyone To Buy Health Insurance and Companies To Accept People With Pre-Existing Conditions – Public Option

Hillary Will Force Everyone To Buy Health Insurance and Companies To Accept People With Pre-Existing Conditions – Public Option

Hillary

(Best Syndication) Hillary Clinton touted her health care program proposal Monday and made it clear her program would not be run by the government. Health care is the second most important issue among Americans after the war in Iraq. All of the Democratic candidates have some sort of universal health care proposal and hers is similar to the Edwards plan.

Americans worry about cancelled policies, denied claims and pre-existing conditions. Her “American Health Choices Plan” would at least address one of those issues by forcing insurance companies to accept people with pre-existing conditions. Amazingly the New York Senator says her plan would be “affordable” even though insurance companies would be forced to accept people with pre-existing conditions.

Reddy

(Best Syndication) Founder of our local Desert Valley Hospital, Prem Reddy has been buying hospitals in California the past couple years and is now being criticized for putting profits ahead of patient care. The 58 year old cardiologist flies his new $1.4-million helicopter from his Apple Valley home to Orange County and other facilities in Sherman Oaks, Huntington Beach and San Diego.

A recent report in the Los Angeles Times has put a blemish on this self proclaimed philanthropist. According to the report on July 8th, Reddy’s company, Prime Healthcare Services Inc, has purchased nonprofit entities, and with the approval of California Attorney General Jerry Brown, switched the facilities to a for-profit status.

Sicko Compares French Canadian British and Cuban Health Care Systems To The United State – Insurance Companies Profits Issue

Sicko Compares French Canadian British and Cuban Health Care Systems To The United State – Insurance Companies Profits Issue

Moore Sicko

(Best Syndication) The Michael Moore movie “Sicko” has not even hit the theaters yet but there is a lot of buzz concerning the film. This movie is not about the uninsured problem. This movie is about the problems faced by people with insurance. Moore chronicled the problems faced by people who have insurance.

Both energy and health care costs have been outstripping inflation. According to the National Coalition on Health Care (NCHC), Americans spend $2 trillion on health care per year. That works out to about $6,700 per person in the country. In total that is 16 percent of our GDP.

Although no system is perfect, Moore contrasted the US for profit health care system with socialized systems in Canada, the United Kingdom, France and even Cuba. The movie highlights several points and includes some interviews with former insurance company employees who discuss methods used by their employers to increasing profits by denying claims.

Martin Luther King Jr Harbor Hospital May Be Forced To Close – Woman Died On Floor of Emergency Room

Martin Luther King Jr Harbor Hospital May Be Forced To Close – Woman Died On Floor of Emergency Room

MLK Harbor Hospital

(Best Syndication) As other hospitals in the metro area have been closing their emergency rooms, the death of a woman last month puts pressure on Martin Luther King Jr. Harbor Hospital (formerly King / Drew) emergency services to take corrective action or risk being shut down. A report revealed that a woman bled to death on the floor of the emergency room last month.

This case even made national news. "Here's a person crying for help. Will no one help?" said Arthur Caplan, a bioethicist at the University of Pennsylvania who discussed the case on CNN this week. "What kind of a society are we when we can't even render aid to someone who's in their own blood and vomit on the floor and you're mopping around them? It's a kind of morality tale of a society gone cold."
