Uniquely American: What the US Can Learn from New Zealand’s Single Payer System
Ever think about moving to another country to see what health care is like in a single payer system? Dr. Carol Paris did just that, practicing psychiatry in New Zealand for a year. She has developed a more clear vision of how the United States health care system can not only catch up with the rest of the modern world, but actually begin to lead again. She can help us learn from the strengths and challenges of how single payer operates in New Zealand, and build a uniquely American solution that would be a beacon for all other nations.
Dr. Paris is a psychiatrist and a member of PNHP, Physicians for a National Health Program. She was one of the “Baucus 8″ arrested with Dr. Margaret Flowers, Attorney Kevin Zeese and others for protesting the absence of representation for single payer universal health care on the Baucus Senate Panel hearings.
