The Dose, Episode Two: A Menu of Medical Prices


In this episode of The Dose  — the Commonwealth Fund’s new health policy podcast — host Shanoor Seervai speaks with Natacha Lemaire, a French citizen who spent a year in the U.S. for a fellowship and experienced surprise and frustration as she learned to navigate the U.S. health system.

Coming from France, where everyone has coverage, Natacha was struck by the high costs of care in the U.S., the lack of transparency around prices, and the frequency with which medical tests were ordered.

The Dose will get you up to date on the latest research, personal stories about health care and the health system, and innovations that could make life easier for patients, family, and caregivers.
