The hug shortage, the new abnormal, and the $7,000 COVID test. What we’ve learned in SEASON-19

SEASON-19 – Episode 8

We wrap up our COVID-19 popup season with stories from three folks with very different takes on what we’ve learned so far about what the pandemic is costing us:

A doctor and advocate in Brooklyn looks back on the wave of black and brown patients that filled her clinic in March.

A nurse-practitioner in Texas looks at how new tech is—and isn’t—helping the older patients she cares for.

And: One of the country’s top insurance nerds says her first policy ideas to keep people from getting stuck with high bills for COVID tests … were wrong.

Get ready for the hug shortage, the new abnormal, and the $7,000 COVID test.

And: Help guide the next steps for this show!  Take five minutes for our listener survey. We so appreciate it.
