ACEP's "Just 2 Percent" Campaign
ACEP has just kicked off their “Just 2%” campaign. Emergency care accounts for only 2 percent of the nation’s health care dollars annualy, and many lawmakers believe that it is the most expensive type of medical care...nothing is further from the truth! Trying to keep people out of the ER will not save health care dollars, not to mention is very dangerous. Dr. Andy Bern, an ACEP board member joins the show to talk about this campaign and reveal some important new polling data.
