(HENGYANG, China) - Dr. Chen Yuna had just eaten her lunch and was seated at her desk updating patients' medical records when a masked man entered her office. He pulled out a dagger and stabbed her 28 times in her neck, chest, stomach and elsewhere. Then he left her to die in a pool of blood.

He knew the hospital well enough to slip out easily: Before he became Chen's killer, the man had been her patient......

I knew it......Capitalism and the free market ruined China’s centrally-planned Communist health care system.

This article is nonsense. The Chinese health system is still very much Gov’t controlled. It has many aspects that we will start to see in the USA.

You won’t see a doctor unless you have connection with them or bribe them. It is absolutely impossible to open a clinic or hospital without Gov’t approval at many levels. Doctors will not see patients who depend solely on Gov’t payments. Device and pharmaceutical makers can only market their products with payments to and heavy regulations from the Gov’t

The problem is that patients in China now feel entitled to ‘free care”. But, doctors can only spend very little time with each patient. And apparently, not all expenses are covered when complications arise and costs mount.

“In general, the government’s expansion of health insurance coverage - from 30 percent of the population in 2003 to 96 percent last year - has made it more affordable for people to seek health care”

I myself never thought it would happen, but I have actually have had to hire a security guard at my pain management clinic to deal with angry, entitled patients.
