Description

An investigation into the deterioration of the quality of medical care in the Cincinnati area. Ten years ago, four of the city's biggest corporate giants--Proctor & Gamble, General Electric, Kroger and Cincinnati Bell--were looking to cut their insurance costs, so they made deals with local hospitals and doctors to accept much lower reimbursement rates or pay. What followed was an exodus of doctors, a difficulty in recruiting new doctors to the area, hospital closures and cutbacks, and long waits for appointments.
