Health Care Hustle

March 23, 2007

The website of the organization Working America has launched the Health Care Hustle – an opportunity to share stories online by health care consumers who feel the impact of the broken health care system here. Many of the stories are submitted anonymously by the uninsured or underinsured and low income.  As you might expect, these are stories of high deductables, expenses driving people to bankruptcy and relying on emergency room care. The site also gives the user the opportunity to write one of the Hustlers – big pharma, insurance industry, greedy corporations, and Bush and company generating a standard letter email promoting the groups issues.

Unlike other consumer websites which encourage rating doctors and hospitals as good or bad, this site is focused exclusively on what’s wrong with healthcare. Maybe it will provide fodder for legislators to promote change in health care financing and delivery.
