“The entirety of the healthcare debate has been defined by the left using their terms- pre-existing conditions being one of them. Everyone who has seen a doctor has a pre-existing condition. What needs to happen is to make sure that insurance companies cannot deny someone the ability to get health insurance based on their health status. The other thing is to make sure that there is some type of safety net so that a medical condition can get treated without creating an individual financial crisis. How we get there is going to require much more than telling insurance companies, which are publicly traded corporations, how they must operate their businesses. At some point, the chains must be taken off of the free market and allow it to operate.” – Hal Scherz MD, FACS, FAAP and Founder of Docs 4 Patient Care Foundation.
