Today's NewsQ Commentary comes from Will Nicholson, M.D. He explains why he said 'no' to his employer's health plan:

"I learned in medical school that addressing the ills of an individual patient cannot be separated from addressing the ills of a health system as a whole. For me, uncoupling my employer from my health insurance provider is a first step toward a clear understanding of America's health care system."
