Three times in the last two weeks, people - a patient, a colleague and my wife - told me stories about how out of control the price of EpiPens were. Monday, my New York Times colleagues recounted in detail how expensive the devices have become in recent years. All tell the tale of how much even basic health care can cost in the United States.

But by digging a bit further, the story of EpiPens can also explain so much of what's wrong with our health care system. That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.
