      Thanks! Well, that’s the difficult part and I’m the first to admit that I really don’t know. The system in the US is really messed up. But I do think some way of regulating prices so they don’t vary widely from hospital to hospital is essential. Steven Brill wrote an article about this in Time magazine called The Bitter Pill if you’re interested. And as far as getting involved, the first thing to do is try and get as much information on this problem as you can. You can also let your representatives in government know that this issue is an important one. And talk to others about it. I know that may not seem like much, but the more people who are aware of the real problems of the system, the more likely a solution is to be presented.
