Abstract:

Why have America's health care costs skyrocketed? In this NBC News program, Tom Brokaw follows several cases at Staten Island University Hospital as he explores reasons behind financial turmoil in the U.S. health-care system. Among the patients: a 24-year-old man with no insurance who lost both legs in the Staten Island Ferry accident of October 2003. Another victim: a 62-year-old woman with a fractured hip and shoulder who has private insurance-but it didn't cover the rehabilitation equipment she needs. Brokaw also interviews doctors, administrators, and leading scholars, receiving conflicting opinions on the issue from Heritage Foundation economist Stuart Butler and Princeton health economist Uwe Reinhardt.
