Dr. Schilling: Those who advocate replacing my country’s private health insurance system with nationalized health insurance because of the rising costs of medical care fail to consider the high human costs that consumers pay in countries with nationalized insurance: access to high-technology medicine is restricted. Kidney transplants and open-heart surgery—familiar life-saving procedures—are rationed. People are denied their right to treatments they want and need.

Dr. Laforte: Your country’s reliance on private health insurance denies access even to basic, conventional medicine to the many people who cannot afford adequate health coverage. With nationalized insurance, rich and poor have equal access to life-saving medical procedures. And people’s right to decent medical treatment regardless of income is not violated.

Dr. Schilling’s and Dr. Laforte’s statements provide the most support for holding that they would disagree about the truth of which one of the following?

(A) People’s rights are violated less when they are denied an available medical treatment they need because they lack the means to pay for it than when they are denied such treatment on noneconomic grounds.
(B) Where health insurance is provided by private insurance companies, people who are wealthy generally receive better health care than do people who are unable to afford health insurance.
(C) In countries that rely primarily on private health insurance to pay for medical costs, most people who would benefit from a kidney transplant receive one.
(D) In countries with nationalized health insurance, no one who needs a familiar medical treatment in order to stay alive is denied that treatment.
(E) Anyone who wants a particular medical treatment has a right to receive that treatment.

I did not understand the question properly.
I assume they both will disagree (together) with which of the following?

Go for (A).

go with D.

Dr. Schilling: with nationalized insurance, people's right to medical treatment will be violated, for example, kidney transplants and open-heart surgery are rationed.

Dr. Laforte: with nationalized insurance, people's right to medical treatment will not be violated.

hence, the primary dispute is that whether people's right to medical treatment will be violated or not.

OA please.

OA is A.
jpv, can you please your reasoning for choosing A.

I think all A, C, D are disagreed by either of the two doctors.

IMO Except (A), all other statement are disagreed by EITHER of the 2 doc.

BOTH doc disagree with (A):

S says :rising costs of medical care fail to consider the high human costs that consumers pay in countries with nationalized insurance:
1. access to high-technology medicine is restricted.
2. Kidney transplants and open-heart surgery—familiar life-saving procedures—are rationed.
3. People are denied their right to treatments they want and need.

Doc L says: And people’s right to decent medical treatment regardless of income is not violated.

tough one.
Going with B.

I was stuck between A and B :(

A. Out of scope - there was nothing said about non-econominc grounds
C Not necessarily true. Most people will receive only if they can afford it.
D too strong ; uses "no one"
E too strong ; uses "anyone"

I'm still confused. :oops:
Dr. L certainly disagrees with A.

However Dr. S says:
People are denied their right to treatments they want and need.=> becoz they are rationed => not on economic grounds.

Thus it is not clear whether Dr.S disagrees with A.

I think both docs disagree with denying medical treatment to anyone. Neither one differentiates between degrees of denial on the basis of economic or non-economic reasons. What I found ambiguous about this question was that we had to find a statement upon which "both" disagree. I thought they meant strongly disagree "with each other" :beat . Answer E is not correct because Laforte certainly supports a system of healthcare in which everyone deserves medical treatment.

Yes, I also mistake what does the question ask?

what does they both disagree or what is their dispute?

Could someone clarify?
