Sick Around the World

This is, essentially, the film version of the book "The Healing of America." In this film, first broadcast on PBS Frontline, Reid travels to Britain, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, and Taiwan to study the different models of health care delivery.
The film shows that "universal coverage" doesn't have to mean "socialized medicine." Three of the countries in the movie --Germany, Switzerland, and Japan -- providee health care for everybody at reasonable cost using private doctors, private hospitals, and private insurance.
