Maybe part of the Health Care crisis is that we HAVE to turn to Insurance companies....will creating a government sponosered health Insurance REALLY fix the issue? Why are we trying to require a mandatory health INSURANCE when we should be trying to bring down the overall COST so that ANY body can afford to go to the Dr. with OUT insurance...just sayin...Answer Question

I'm all for paying cash if the bill is less than astronomical. Think of all the paper pushers who would be out of a job. Just think the cost of an office visit would drop from $120 buck to $40 just as soon as the doctor could fire all the medical billing people!

I personally think we need to focus more on bringing costs down so that insurance isn't really needed except for catastrophic coverage for emergencies and serious illness. I think we should all have to pay on a sliding fee scale for things like physicals, sick visits, and even immunizations. Make things affordable by cutting out full insurance coverage. The insurance companies are most of the problem surrounding high costs. Then throw in some tort reform so that docs aren't passing on the high malpractice insurance costs to their patients, and you can drive down costs some more. There is no need for mandatory insurance coverage if we just make it affordable for all to pay up front for their health care.

WE LIVE IN THE ONLY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD THAT FINDS IT ACCEPTABLE TO PROFIT OFF OF THE SICK
That's bullsh-t. All doctors and nurses in the world make a profit off the sick, they don't do it for free! Hospitals have to make enough money to keep their doors open. Whether the money is paid out of your wallet or paid out of your taxes, there is no such thing as free medical care in the world.
