Ep. 41 - Breaking up hospital monopolies?
Why one proposal in Indiana is a bad idea
In this episode of the FLATLINING Podcast, Matthew and Ron discuss two news items. First, they talk about new data that shows more physicians died during the COVID-19 pandemic than previously expected, fueling the already-created physician shortage. What happens if there aren’t enough physicians?
Then, they discuss a new bill in the state of Indiana that claims to help regulate some of the state’s largest hospital systems. Ron explains why this proposal is a bad idea.
