As the worsening economy leads to massive job losses—potentially forcing millions more Americans to go without health insurance—FRONTLINE travels the country examining the nation’s broken health care system and explores the need for a fundamental overhaul. Veteran FRONTLINE producer Jon Palfreman dissects the private insurance system, a system that not only fails to cover 46 million Americans but also leaves millions more underinsured and at risk of bankruptcy.
A story about Microsoft’s employee outstanding health coverage is highlighted as a best practice for all companies in this Frontline segment. Microsoft’s SVP of Human Resources Lisa Brummel is interviewed.
