“Extending Health Care to all Ethically and Practically: Lessons from COVID-19” by Dr. Charles Binkley, director of Bioethics and Dick Levy, Ethics Center advisory board member, former board chair of Sutter Health, and former CEO of Varian Medical Systems, is currently running on STAT News, a highly prominent health and medical publication. The opinion article details ethically sound and humanitarian-centered reasons why healthcare should be a right, not a privilege. Their model finds a common ground between moral reasoning and economic realities to lower healthcare costs while extending coverage to all: reduce lower-value care and increase higher-value care for everyone. COVID-19 has shown the tremendous speed at which the American healthcare system is capable of working, so now is the time to pivot healthcare towards a more caring and less heartless institution.
