Currently, three-quarters of all U.S. healthcare dollars are spent on 100 million people with chronic illnesses and conditions. Will a cost-conscious healthcare system, increasingly driven by the market and oriented toward acute care, give them the proper care? This program examines how the chronically ill are faring today in seeking the high-quality, long-term care they need. Special reports focus on cases of patients with cancer, victims of stroke and heart disease, and children with congenital illnesses, comparing their treatment by commercial HMOs with the diagnoses and recommendations of independent experts. The program also documents the burdens on families providing home care.
