Does anyone have a source for me to learn about our current health system as it regards to insurance companies, physicians, and hospitals? I have a general idea but no where near enough to hold a convo on the topic in an interview.

Thank you!

BTW thank you to everyone who provided me with great links on learning about the ACA and the healthcare changes coming up.:thumbup:

If you are interested in a book, I would recommend "The Healing of America" by T.R. Reid.
It is a pretty interesting book that looks at our health care and compares it to other successful countries. I dont know if it is exactly what you are looking for, but I thought it was insightful.

Do a google search braddah cause you should be able to find a great deal of information on everything on the web. Start with an overview of the types of health care systems and then dig deep. There is plenty. :thumbup:
