Study says many kids receive inadequate health care

Filed under:

Kids who frequently visit their doctors as scheduled for checkups and other reasons end up receiving the correct care only about half the time. This comes as a shocking result from a nationwide study released this week which looked at children's health care quality nationwide.

Astonishingly, almost all of the 1,536 kids who participated in the study had insurance. This appears to be another smack at how badly trained some doctors must be these days, or that something else is severely broken in the U.S. health care system, often touted as the world's most advanced.

I really look forward to the upcoming debates and plans that will be laid out by U.S. Presidential candidates is they relate to health care reform in this country. Apparently, it's not a priority any longer. It's even more reason to take charge of one's health on a private and individual basis.
