A despicable element of Big Medicine’s big business has been getting some badly needed scrutiny, with the public glare highlighting how debt incurred due to medical treatment crushes far too many Americans and how reforms are desperately needed. Is public shaming becoming one of the key ways to deal with a horrible problem for Americans?

Kudos, of course, to broadcast satirist John Oliver for his stunt in creating earlier this year an online barebones “company” that claimed to specialize in re-purchasing debt from what he terms “bottom-feeding” collection agencies (see the video). The sums owed, he explains, really shouldn’t be at issue because they are beyond legal time limits for collectors to pursue.
