Heads Up: Frontline’s Sick Around America Airing TONIGHT

Frontline  Don’t forget to check out Frontline’s special report tonight on PBS: Sick Around America

Here’s a teaser from PBS’ website:

As the worsening economy leads to massive job losses-potentially forcing millions more Americans to go without health insurance-FRONTLINE travels the country examining the nation’s broken health care system and explores the need for a fundamental overhaul. Veteran FRONTLINE producer Jon Palfreman dissects the private insurance system, a system that not only fails to cover 46 million Americans but also leaves millions more underinsured and at risk of bankruptcy, in Sick Around America, airing Tuesday, March 31, 2009, at 9 P.M. ET on PBS (check local listings).

You can also watch a trailer here.

The show is being billed as the sequel to last year’s Sick Around the World, which looked at the healthcare systems of the United Kingdom, Japan, Germany, Taiwan and Switzerland.

Check back tomorrow for a synopsis of the program.  Let us know what you thought!
