If you listen to the news regarding ever-escalating healthcare costs, you know there appears to be no end in sight. Legislators who wish to address this issue believe the only answer is to redesign and limit Medicare and Medicaid for future generations and to cap drug prices.

But do these efforts address the root cause of increasing healthcare costs? Sadly, no.

A few years ago, I was writing a paper. The assignment was “Why be moral?” In the course of researching this paper, I came across a quote by Mother Teresa that has affected how I think about our struggles to stay healthy.

Are you old enough to remember Doc Adams of Gunsmoke? Do you recall how he often gave his services for free or gratefully accepted a chicken from struggling folks? What ever happened to those kind, humanitarian healthcare providers and specifically to discounts for the poor? How can so many people be forced to declare bankruptcy because of unexpectedly high medical expenses?
