All these health care reform questions have me wondering . . .
What do you think is a fair price to be taken care of at the doctor?
Keep in mind what you are willing to pay for a meal at a restaurant, a hair cut, etc.

Depends on who you ask. Zero Liability Americans will say they should not have to pay for health care, it is a "right" in their mind. They feel Dr's should be servants to the state? Who knows.... Meanwhile rational Americans will appreciate the Dr's education, staff, building, etc, etc and understand that a fee is needed. They will understand the lawyers who are currently pulling the puppet strings in our gov't and how those lawyers don't want to lose clients, thus will not accept anything with the words TORT REFORM. Rational Americans also understand the need for competition in a free market and allowing insurance companies to compete across state lines for customers will bring the cost down. Consumers of insurance COULD expect more and pay reasonable amounts if they weren't following the lawyers politicians.

I really can't say because there are so many types of insurance that vary with how and what they cover. I'd like to look into the insurance companies and see how they formulate their coverage. I think we need to see what the "real" cost of health care is. There are so many charges for just having a baby that a person does not really know what it costs. I didn't because I have full coverage, thankfully. I don't have copays, and pay $3 a script. That is great coverage, but we all are not covered equally, and I think that is what Obama wants to change. I don't have any answers personally, but I do think equal health insurance for all should be a right.

Tricare isn't even Universal Health care. It's part of the compensation for committing time and serving in the armed services. You have to CONTRIBUTE and perform your military obligation to receive tricare. You (or your spouse) provides a service (their job), they get paid. Part of that payment is also health coverage. It's pretty simple to understand.
