• Healthcare Triage: A Lyft to the Hospital: Can Ride Sharing Replace Ambulances?

    An ambulance ride of just a few miles can cost thousands of dollars, and a lot of it may not be covered by insurance. With ride-hailing services like Uber or Lyft far cheaper and now available within minutes in many areas, would using one instead be a good idea?

    Perhaps surprisingly, the answer in many cases is yes. That’s the topic of this week’s HCT.

    This episode was adapted from a column Austin wrote for The Upshot.
