See how being uninsured in the U.S. can sometimes be equivalent to a death sentence. In another case one
man had to choose between expensive treatment that would outlast his insurance or a hasty, insurance covered amputation of the foot. Truly sickening!
From their website:
CRITICAL CONDITION, a new feature documentary by Roger Weisberg, paints a disturbing and gripping
portrait of what happens when you’re sick and uninsured in America. The unforgettable subjects of this cinema
verite documentary discover that being uncovered can cost them their jobs, health, homes, savings, and even
their lives. Unlike Michael Moore’s SICKO, which illustrated the problems of people with private insurance,
CRITICAL CONDITION looks at the harrowing struggles of people battling serious illness with no insurance
whatsoever. By exposing the tragic human dimensions of this crisis, CRITICAL CONDITION will make
viewers feel both outraged and motivated to address this national disgrace at the precise moment when health
care reform will be debated during the run-up to the presidential election.
