With all this chatter about universal health care being the greatest thing since sliced bread, I'm wondering if this is one of those things that may be good in theory & principle but terrible in reality.
What if the actual quality of healthcare decreases? As it is, one waits nearly an hour to see the doctor even when you have decent health insurance. My fear is that waiting rooms are going to turn into pseudo ER-style waiting rooms with overworked and underpaid doctors. As it is, many doctors now are turning down insurance. I hope that if UHC does happen, doctors are incentivized in some way.
