Description
Filmmaker Michael Moore critiques the American health care system, focusing especially on the HMOs, drug companies, and congressmen who profit from the status quo. Also includes an analysis of the health care systems in Canada, England, France and Cuba, where free universal health care is the norm.
Michael Moore interviews Americans who have been denied treatment by the United States health care insurance companies -- companies who sacrifice essential health services in order to maximize profits. Sheds light on the how complicated it can become for communities and individuals, and the sacrifices they have made when they are denied health care coverage.
