Cluelessness at the WaPo:
Why France’s Health Care Is So Good
In it, Cécile Prieur informs us that more than 25% of Paris doctors (and nearly a third of dentists and almost 2/5 of gynocologists) refuse to treat poor clients. The denials of the CMU — a name someone like BHO should love: couverture médicale universelle or universal medical cover — are illegal but rarely sanctioned…
The main reason? The doctors are overwhelmed by the paperwork and bureaucratic delays in getting paid…something anyone who’s dealt with Medicare in the US can sympathize with.
And that’s the least of French healthcare problems: there’s more, lots more.
