I had to laugh out loud in my sedan while listening to the local NPR affiliate station recently. Think of it as an absurd, tragic-comic commentary on the present state of our health care delivery system. It was a blurb of no more than 5-10 seconds paid for by the underwriter of the local broadcast. A prominent managed health care plan touted its name, followed by a marketing slogan intended to attract more consumers:
“. . . where doctors take extra time to get to know each patient.”
In our current health care system, that’s not standard, that’s a selling point.
Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
