Edward R. Murrow Award for news documentary WKYT Investigates | Medical Emergency

Healthcare in the United States is a $3 trillion a year industry, and the costs are felt by every man, woman, and child. WKYT Investigates provided an in-depth look into numerous angles within the health care industry: the rising cost of visiting the emergency room and insurance companies refusing to pay; Medicaid access changes in Kentucky; the strain of the opioid epidemic on health care in Kentucky; and the accountability of doctors, state licensing boards, and hospitals to the patients they provide care to each day.
