Nope. Look, throughout this health care debate I've made numerous proposals as far as fixing the problem. At least they're a starting point. Post me a link to the thread with your plan in it. Then we'll talk. Same with you Bud. I want to see if you're both just whiners of whether you've actually got any solutions.
To fuel your derail, here's my plan:
1. Everyone needs to pay into a centralized, government-sponsored insurance. Wealthy people can supplement their care out-of-pocket. If private, "luxury" health insurance evolves, so be it.
2. Insurance should pay for an allocated number of routine visits, important meds (sorry, Viagra and Ambien) + catastrophic care - which kicks in after a certain $ value is exceeded. The rest is out-of-pocket.
3. Every visit needs a copay. Preventive care visits have reduced fees.
4. One set of rules should eliminate a lot of the coders/billers/admin required by a multifaceted insurance industry. A central EHR should eliminate a lot of the medical records personnel, too.
5. Tort reform to promote less defensive medicine. Should also reduce malpractice premiums, though this hasn't happened when reform has occurred. Establish a central medical panel to review validity of malpractice cases, toss the illegitimate claims early.
6. Somehow limit the "me too" drugs that pharma/device industry devotes too many resources developing, purely for financial reasons. Eliminate drug reps and advertising, too - the use of meds/devices should be based on need and affordability, in that order. (notice this flies in the face of free market economics). Might need to revisit the patent laws as well.
7. Teach the American public that waiting for noncritical tests/procedures is not tantamount to care rationing any more than basing their availability on ability to pay.
8. Doctors take a pay cut, particularly specialists. We need more primary care and the pay disparity is not justified.
9. Paying for all this can come from income tax, rather than placing the onus on employers. We can cut our military 90%, increase the retirement age for SS and eliminate all foreign aid to help with the bill. Plus up the sin taxes on tobacco, alcohol +/- fast food. And eliminate the Bush tax cuts.
10. Initiate meaningful end-of-life policies which mandate advance care directives and empower physicians in futile situations to stop wasting resources on lost causes.
11. Most importantly promote healthy lifestyle among our lazy, fat, overindulgent society.
Medicine is like no other industry. Few people want the product until they are not in position to pay for it. Most diseases are indolent and tangible health detriment isn't evident until potentially irreversible damage has been done. Very little is "quick fix", and almost everything is expensive. Why would anyone think supply/demand would apply to such a market? What incentive do insurers have to provide care for those who cannot afford it - do you let people suffer/die because they lack $ to pay for insurance?
