Oy Vey!

A Cartoonist’s Take on Managed Care

“How often do you have this pre-existing condition?”

“I’ve been under a lot of pressure to get well.”

“I’m putting you on a stronger placebo.”

“The technology’s in place.
Now all we have to do is misuse it.”

“I’m softening my position on the spending binge the doctors have planned for my health care.”

“You didn’t fill in the part that would make it incredibly easy to steal your identity.”
