In "Medicare's Victims", David Hogberg recounts the intimate stories of patients and physicians who have struggled with Medicare – and then examines the particular Medicare policy that has caused their plight. Patients who are victims of Medicare are often the sickest of the sick – whether they are the disabled who are on Medicare's two-year waiting period; seniors who fell into Part D's donut hole; or individuals who are harmed through too much treatment or not enough. Physicians who are victims are the ones who struggle to provide the best care for their patients while Medicare's reimbursement system, in effect, punishes them for it. There clearly is one thing all of them do have in common: the lack of political power.
