A new trend would pay patients to remember to take their medicine and otherwise comply with treatment regimens. Does it really take "bribery" to convince people to take their medicine? I understand that we may have to provide financial assistance to people who can't afford their medicine, but isn't feeling better and staying out of the hospital enough of an incentive for most people to follow doctor's orders? Perhaps not, according to this recent trend.
I don't get it. Being in the hospital is awful. Being sick is awful. I don't need to be convinced to take care of myself. I don't want to believe that it takes paying people to get them to care for themselves.
Am I wrong? Jennifer
