Health insurance is a mess. I have a college student aging out of our insurance soon, can go on cobra through my husband's company but wow is that expensive. But for choice of doctors and more personal control over health decisions it's worth it because we have a good plan. It's expensive but I know we're lucky. Would organizations specific to certain careers offering health insurance be a good idea? If you're an engineer, a nurse, a teacher then through a chosen associated organization not necessasrily through a specific employer? Unions specifically for all careers for health care plans? How can this country better it's health PLANS for coverage for all?Answer Question

Health insurance is a cycle. First you will need to train more people to be doctors because if you don't then you will see an abundance of people waiting to see a doctor for 4 hours or more and I don't mean in the ER. If we don't have the adequate number of doctors then people will be treated as a number and more people will die from preventable diseases and/or problems because it will take 4-6 months just to be able to have the necessary surgery or procedure. Until that happens we will not have a health care system that actually works.

There are so many misconceptions about universal health care its ridiculous. All we do is listen to the politicians and media and we think we have some knowledge on this topic. Watch the movie Sicko and talk to people from these countries and learn about how much freedom they have to choose doctors...and how much they LOVE their health care system. America can do it and knows how to do it. They just won't because too many big business companies wouldn't make billions of dollars anymore.
