#45 – Healthcare vs. Humancare

In this episode, we explore some of the philosophical and moral questions surrounding privatized healthcare vs. universal healthcare. In a world of rising healthcare costs, and few options for consumers, is it fair to have healthcare tied so tightly to employment? Is healthcare a human right? Does government owe its citizens the basic necessities of life? What should the modern contract between government and citizens consist of? United Healthcare’s new policy will have them retroactively evaluate whether or not care received at an emergency room was actually an emergency. We dissect this new policy during this conversation as well. We hope you enjoy this lively discussion!
