During this interview Dr. Pat goes head to head with Seema Verma-Administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
On October 25, 2018, President Trump proposed that Medicare pay for certain prescription drugs based on the prices paid in other advanced industrial countries — a huge change that would save money for the government and for millions of Medicare beneficiaries. But what if the report presented to Trump compared counties that are subsidized or have a universal health care system? The model proposed impacts the sickest group of elderly in a proposed 5 year trial. Dr. Pat poses, "if drug prices are lower in those counties, just import and create a competitive system for the pharmaceutical companies in the USA?" The response by the Administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services will shock you.
