Unequal care troubles CEO
Tom Walsh, Detroit Free Press, 6-7-05

Walsh recounts an interview with Pfizer CEO Hank McKinnell, the author of the new book “A Call to Action: Taking Back Healthcare for Future Generations.” Walsh notes that,

One of McKinnell’s more provocative arguments is that too many Americans are over-insured. That's right, over-insured -- not uninsured or under-insured. ‘We need to approach health insurance just as we approach other insurance in our lives. It's not for everyday expenses. Nobody has automobile insurance that pays for oil changes,’ he said.”
