In today's world, there are many hot-button topics that generate equal parts debate and confusion. At the top of that list is healthcare. For most Americans, finding out "the truth" about current problems or possible fixes is virtually impossible amidst all the emotionally charged rhetoric. Dr. Tim Johnson has been reporting on health matters for ABC since the mid-seventies, but in recent years he has spent an increasing amount of time studying our system of healthcare--or lack thereof. Many Americans fall between the cracks and do not receive any care--or receive care that is either inferior or too costly or both. Over the years, he has learned some important lessons, and in The Truth About Getting Sick in America, he shares those lessons and looks to the future of American healthcare.
