Summary
Four in five Americans say the health care system needs fundamental change. Can the U.S. learn anything from the rest of the world about how to make medical care and insurance accessible to all? Or are countries with government-run coverage so culturally different from America that their solutions are unworkable here? In this episode of Frontline, correspondent T. R. Reid examines the public systems of other advanced capitalist democracies-including Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, and Taiwan-to see what ideas might help the U.S. reform its troubled approach to health care
