Gore:  If your doctor says you need

a particular specialist or some treatment...

If you've got an HMO or an insurance company,

a lot of times some bean counter behind a computer terminal

who doesn't have a license to practice medicine

and doesn't have a right to play God...

Will overrule the doctor's orders.

I'm telling you we need a Patients' Bill of Rights

to take the medical decisions away

from the HMOs and insurance companies

and give them back to the doctors and the nurses.

Background: This ad was recorded in Bellevue, Iowa during the boat trip Gore took down the Mississippi immediately following the Democratic National Convention.
