NYT Well Blog Post: When the Patient Can’t Afford the Care

Dr. Pauline Chen posts about When the Patient Can’t Afford the Care on the New York Times Well Blog. Medical schools have added courses to educate physicians on insurance programs and coverage. Apparently,  patient noncompliance sometimes occurs because patients can’t afford their prescription medications and outpatient treatment. The comments from patients unable to afford their prescribed health care are most compelling. I posted a comment (#89).
