The Price of Health

Monday, September 16, 2019

Del. Lee Carter has called for a cap on insulin prices. Cathy Lewis will discuss the cost of that life-saving medicine with him, and we will hear from a woman who has been impacted by this issue personally. Then we will discuss efforts by the UVA Health System to collect medical debts from patients. A Washington Post article reported that it has sued thousands of people, seized bank accounts, put liens on property, and forced people into bankruptcy. Later in the program, we will hear about a local man who is HIV-positive and recently donated a kidney to a recipient with HIV as part of a clinical trial.

Today's Guests:
Del. Lee Carter - District 50
Nicole Smith-Holt - Activist
Jay Hancock - Kaiser Health News
Karl Neumann - Sentara
