Default What Do You Do when the Health Planners Are Insane

Sounds like the US Affordable Care Act is going to have even more problems than the British National Health Service.

That is because it's really The Coprotists Force Health Care On Those Who Have Opted Out Because They See What A Sham The Insurance Companies Have Become Act.

We really need to get back to the pre WWII system of paying out of your own pocket, the same as you would for any other purchase.

We need to get to the Chinese rural community system. Pay the doctor once a month or other arranged frequency. Don't pay when you are sick. It will be the doctor's incentive to get you well, so they can continue to receive pay. Of course, I don't know what happens if they don't like you.

Oh dear. Wasn't that the mafia's plan of protection? Well perhaps that is a good plan for an insurance company. We pay when we are well, and stop when we are sick. They would go broke.

They traditional process is to pay huge premiums while you are healthy and then when you get sick, the medical procedure is denied and your policy gets canceled. It's hard to get good representation in congress when they all get free health insurance with no restrictions for life.

I absolutely agree Ajax. The same goes for their pension plans vs Social Security. They even get paid for life whether they finish their term or not. There are so many people complaining about socialism. Seems pretty close to me.
