Guest: Joseph Q. Jarvis, MD, MSPH, Author, “The Purple World: Healing the Harm in American Health Care” America spends more on it than any other country, but we’re not getting better results – and in many cases, our results are worse. The Commonwealth Fund says the reason we pay so much is because of high prices and high administrative costs. Obamacare only made the problem worse, according to physician and public health expert Joseph Jarvis. But Trump’s proposed changes are no better. After decades working in medicine and trying to solve America’s healthcare problem, Jarvis is convinced the answer is radical – we need to completely do away with the health insurance system.
