Sicko

The movie Sicko (Michael Moore, 2007) is a documentary about the health care system in the Untied States and how it ***** failing the people who need it most. There is no surprise in that simple statement, for ***** people already see the health care system as in need of reform, and efforts to do so have been offered for some time, though not developed enough to make people believe that the reform can be achieved. Moore thus plays off an ***** existing concern about high costs, poor insur*****ce coverage, discrimination on the b*****is of economic status, and medical decisions *****ing made not by *****ctors but by insurers more interested in saving money than in good health *****. The film is shaped around ***** investigations of the filmmaker and ***** anecdotal evidence from people who hade been mistreated ***** ***** system, or at least who believe they have *****. There are a number of reasons to accept what is said in the film, and ***** reasons ***** to accept all that is said in the *****.

For many of ***** people interviewed, there is evidence ***** ***** ***** telling the truth and that they have been mistreated, usually by being denied procedures not for ***** reasons but because an insurance company bureaucrat makes a ruling that is apparently based only on ***** and ***** ***** sound medical advice. The way money plays a role ***** made most apparent in the story of the man who had to decide which f*****ger ***** ***** reattached ***** on cost. Medical science has made great advances, ***** too often whether those advances are used at all is not based only on the ***** but on ability to pay. Insurance ***** long been ***** as the way ***** assure that when a cr*****is occurs ***** ***** procedure is needed, there will be a way to pay for it. What ***** seen too ***** is that the insurance ***** wants to lim***** ********** for those ***** need them. ***** supposed ideal is that all ***** pay in***** a pool ***** buying insurance, and those in ***** take ***** ***** pool when they need to do so. The pool remains viable because most people do not ***** to ***** advantage of it, while they ***** paying to be able to take advantage of ***** ***** they need ***** do so. ***** companies have ********** huge corporations with stockholders who have to be served. Insurance ***** pretend that they exist only to serve their customers, but in fact they more and more serve their stockholders and not their *****. Other stories of denial of service ***** much the same aura ***** this film.

At the ***** time, there is some reason to question these ***** tales ***** ***** they may not ***** true but because there is no certainty that ***** are really representative or that they may be ***** specific cases that might ***** belied by a more in-depth examination of the ***** as a whole.
