Steven Brill just set a Time record. His 36 page cover story titled “Bitter Pill” — a thorough investigation into every aspect of health care pricing — is the longest single piece ever published in Time magazine’s history.

In the article, Brill wonders, “When we debate health care policy in America, we seem to jump right to the issue of who should pay the bills, blowing past what should be the first question: Why exactly are the bills are so high?”

The entire piece is online, but it is 36 pages, so better set aside a good chunk of time to read it.
