Abstract:

As the worsening economy leads to massive job losses--potentially forcing millions more Americans to go without health insurance--FRONTLINE travels the country examining the nation's broken health care system and explores the need for a fundamental overhaul. This film dissects the private insurance system, a system that not only fails to cover 46 million Americans, but also leaves millions more under-insured and at risk of bankruptcy. Around the world, other developed democracies offer universal health care, requiring insurance companies to cover everyone. At its best, American health care can be very good. But not if people across the U.S. are forced into making life decisions--staying in jobs and even bad marriages--to find or keep health insurance.
