some people still don’t have health insurance, and it still matters

Excellent piece on life down in the trenches, as told by a primary care doctor, Jonathan Han, who practices in rural Pennsylvania and whom I consider a good friend. Every day in his office Dr. Han sees patients who come to medical attention only after having developed advanced disease, including incurable cancers, because they lack health insurance. Another convincing argument for why we can’t afford to roll back last year’s health care reforms.
