I got all involved in Motor boat mog spouting... excuse me..!
back on topic!!!!!
We all pay for the uninsured.
They take ambulances to the ER for a cold/fever/flu/infection etc.
No one pays the bill!
Hospitals/Ambulance companies, in turn, have to raise their rates to cover the loss.
so, we all pay.
National health care would give easy access to a primary care physician who could treat and prevent most of the ER visits, thereby keeping the indigent healthier.
It's much cheaper OVERALL, to cover everyone, than it is to subsidize my bill with non-payers.
Now, to the system.
Lowering Doctors, hospitals, drug companies charges/fees by co-op bargaining would reduce the costs.
Doctors, nurses and Hospital administrators are already fuming mad over not getting $1,000. for 10 stitches at the office.
Reasonable and Customary costs would rise to become realistic.
Doctors/hospitals/medication costs would lower to become realistic.
