As Americans grow increasingly worried about access to quality healthcare, lawmakers from both parties are working to find solutions. But not all of their ideas would help patients -- and many could leave them worse off. For over a decade, Peter Pitts has offered incisive commentary on this pressing issue. The essays in this book represent a career's worth of wisdom on subjects ranging from drug development and health insurance to Medicare, drug importation and CBD. Common Sense Healthcare Policy for Common Sense Americans is essential reading for anyone interested in practical solutions to medicine, economics, and the health of our nation.
