@Miller,
They also have enormous investments in equipment. Still, their rates are advancing much faster than those of doctors.

It turns out that the free market does a better job at reconciling supply, demand and quality than do mindless bureaucrats (surprise !).

medicine is not a place for you free market lovers to make your case as the problem with our system is that the market is not allowed to work. the person ordering and/approving the deal is not the one who pays the bill, and this flaw is responsible for over 40 cents of every dollar spent being wasted on defensive medicine, useless procedures, expensive unneeded technology and unneeded drugs. If the market were operating this would not be happening because people would elect to put the money into something of value instead.

We're all likely to see a lot more of this as government bureaucrats seek to "reform" and "improve" the performance of a complex science and art they probably are unable to fully understand.

People have the right to refuse medical treatment or care . They can refuse their medication and all the procedures that are forced on them today.

If all the "care" offered to patients today was offered as a form of charity, do you think the physicians would be ordering nonsense tests such as bone density tests and mammograms for 90+ year old women, who can barely walk?
