Better Healthcare Through Rationing (not my title)

.. and not my article…

Just a reminder that we already DO ration, only it’s being done by insurance company bean counters.

One commenter said that doctors/physicians can’t ration, the hippocratic oath and all. But in truth, they do ration. See my prior blog post on the 84 year old who just had a kidney transplant. Many transplant centers refused to do the procedure. That, uninformed commenter, is physician-based rationing.
