If you've had many conversations about healthcare reform, it is likely you've heard some variation on this theme: 

"Hospitals have to provide care for people who show up. So everyone can get healthcare when they need it. So when people say that can't get healthcare, that isn't true."

Is there any merit to that argument? Spoiler: NO. But if you want to hear more about where that idea comes from, take a listen.

Right to Try laws have come about as a response to cumbersome paperwork required to access the FDA's compassionate use program. However, the FDA has lessened the paperwork required for terminally ill patients to access investigational drugs. 

So is Right to Try a meaningful movement, or is it simply one piece of an overaraching ideology.

Today, 2 Docs Talk about Right to Try laws and who they help.
