They can’t pinpoint the major discrepancy as to why those without insurance are [so] severely disadvantaged.
Orange, California (PRWEB) December 01, 2012
Not all health care is created equal. Patients that have called about prices for procedures know this well.
But Dr. Quinones-Hinojosa, professor of neurosurgery and oncology at Johns Hopkins University revealed that in a review of over 28,000 medical records, ones without health insurance had a threefold chance of dying in the hospital, without information to back up why that is.
The report states that brain tumors cause approximately 13,000 deaths per year. And while they can’t pinpoint the major discrepancy as to why those without insurance are so severely disadvantaged, they contribute part of it to the ability to see a doctor when a problem first becomes prevalent.
While those with insurance will be more likely to seek help as soon as there’s an indication of a problem, those without will likely prolong care until the disease is too far advanced that the operation for the brain tumor isn’t as successful as those that are detected early.
There are far more questions to ask before putting a finger on these answers, but one thing is certain, with health insurance, there’s a higher rate of survival.
But health insurance is not always affordable. Or so it seems.
