One of our largest heath infections is bureaucracy. There can be a cure for it. And it starts with all of us.
Alieta Eck, MD is a physician innovator– she and her husband have a third-party free medical practice in Piscataway, NJ and have operated the Zarephath Health Center, a non-government free clinic for the past 11 years. She has been involved in health care reform since her Internal Medicine residency, and served as the President of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons in 2012. She views the Medicaid system as an ineffective, bloated, bureaucratic nightmare that does not increase access to care and fleeces the taxpayers. She would like to present an alternative to the Affordable Care Act once it is ruled unConsitutional, or simply does not work.
