Sorry but paying for the doctor is the CHEAPEST part of medicine. Try paying for drugs, hospitals, chemo, surgery and anesthesia. The cost for you to have your colonoscopy as a "self-pay" would wipe out most people's savings. Especially because you pay the highest rates for service because there is no incentive for hospitals to give an individual a break in price -- after all, you have to go to a hospital! But maybe your doctor can do surgery on you without anesthesia in his office. Or on your child. I'm sure little dc would appreciate his tonsils removed by your "best" doctor with no anesthesia, hospital, drugs, or care after the doctor finishes the procedure and walks out to do another five for the rest of the day and it is you and DC. Enjoy! DC will thank you so much for that! [ Reply | More ]

It forces people to decide whether a test or procedure is really necessary. When you are paying your own good money for something, you ask a lot more questions and become a more discriminating customer. Doctors are in the business of covering their asses in case they get sued, so they order this, that and the other test even if it is highly unlikely that the test will reveal anything. When you'll be on the hook for thousands of dollars, you'll research it a little bit more and question unnecessary testing. I lived in another country and in the beginning insurance covered everything. It was cheaper to get a prescription for something than to buy things over the counter. Of course, people totally abused the system! The insurance company went bankrupt. Another insurance company stepped in and premiums skyrocketed as did co-pays and deductibles. People changed their behavior pretty darned fast! [ Reply | More ]

That is actual insurance. The problem is that it's not what's being offered to the healthy, what we are being offered is to pay the bills of the sick who are already sick.
