Summary
As rising healthcare costs threaten to bankrupt the country, Money and Medicine tackles the medical, ethical, and financial challenges of containing runaway health care spending. Filmed at both UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles and Intermountain Medical Center in Utah, this insightful documentary asks the question, "How can we reduce unnecessary medical spending so that we can provide affordable, high-quality healthcare to all Americans?" The dramatic doctor/patient stories filmed at these two world-renowned hospitals capture the powerful forces driving soaring healthcare costs as well as proven strategies that effectively reign in excessive medical expenses. With remarkable candor and poignancy, this film captures the painful end-of-life treatment choices made by patients and their families, ranging from very aggressive interventions in the ICU to palliative care at home. The film also investigates the controversy surrounding diagnostic testing and screening as well as the variability in treatment across patients receiving similar elective procedures
