Missoulian | Jesse Ramos: A personal option in health care for Montanans

BY JESSE RAMOS - In my last column, I advocated for a personalized health care system that prioritizes the needs of the individual patient above all else. I outlined the top-down, government-mandated, and subsidized approach to health care that we currently have and why it needs to change. Instead of all that bureaucracy and red tape, we need a health care system that’s as simple as ordering something off a dinner menu.
