Footnote to Health Care Costs

These costs amounted to $2.49 trillion in 2009 and equaled 17.6 percent of GDP. Yesterday at a holiday-kind of dinner held by Brigitte’s swimming group, we learned of this interesting fact. Today a couple will travel some 104 miles, round trip, in order to undergo one neuro-muscular test and to see one specialist, this because neither (test nor specialist) is available anywhere else in the Detroit Metro area. We learned that it took three months of waiting to get this appointment.
