Department of inadvertent candor

"There is no other health condition in which health insurance puts up more barriers to care," said Eric Goplerud, a professor of health policy at George Washington University.

This remark appeared in an article on treatments for alcoholism in today's LA Times.

Ah yes, the function of health insurance: keeping sick people away from access to medical services.

I suspect that "health insurance" is even better at preventing of women's reproductive health care than it is at refusing alcoholics assistance. But I could be wrong.
