SCREWED
by the greedy business of american Healthcare


A sequel to the Michigan Emmy nominated documentary by Dr. Vivek Palavali, Bitter Pill: America and Healthcare in AmericaScrewed highlights what will happen to American healthcare if Trump's administration cannot provide quality and affordable universal healthcare. In Bitter Pill: American and Healthcare in America, it was predicted that, though noble in its intention, Obamacare would not provide affordable, quality healthcare to all American citizens and millions would still be left uninsured or underinsured. Although, ObamaCare did help millions of uninsured get healthcare, unfortunately the premiums for many middle class citizens went up and many healthcare exchanges disappeared.

​Watch as Dr. Palavali highlights, from the neurosurgeon's perspective, the healthcare delivery of many western European nations that provide quality, affordable universal healthcare with better outcomes in comparison with the United States - the only developed nation not to provide universal healthcare to all of its citizens.

Bitter Pill
America & Healthcare In America


​The United States of America is the only developed nation in the world which does not guarantee proper healthcare to all of its citizens. A nation built upon the principle of democracy by the people, of the people and for the people has found itself failing to be for all the people. American healthcare is in critical condition, and deteriorating by the day. Watch as award winning film-maker, Dr. Vivek Palavali dissects this country’s medical industry, to diagnose the root cause destroying healthcare delivery and the deep-rooted cancer responsible for the illness.

​As America desperately seeks the right prescription to cure the ailing field of medicine and provide affordable quality healthcare to all, it stands at the cross roads of two profound socioeconomic philosophical choices. The fundamental choice it has to make is the bitter pill. Unless the nation accepts that bitter medicine and chooses the right path, the present course is certain to lead American healthcare to a dead end.
