Orthopedics and the Vampire Economy

The numbers of uninsured Americans is not a crisis.  The real crisis is the government’s intrusion in private business and the free market, over-taxing and over-regulating.  Dr. Lee Hieb, Past-President of AAPS, has studied highly-regulated economies throughout history and gives options for how businesses and individuals can survive.

When people take control of their own medical care, they make smart choices.  They want an affordable price with a physician who will give quality care.  Physicians who join MediBid have a way to see patients in a timely manner without the restrictions of insurance.
