If the ACA were to bypass insurance companies and rely solely on doctor patient interaction would that not bring premiums down?
Just like Wall Street speculators who buy and sell products repetitively 'til the price of a commodity is artificially jacked up leaving the consumer to pay.
If no one can be refused and there are no preexisting conditions for insurance eligibility, then why do we need fat cat insurers in the middle jacking up prices?
It seems doctors should be saddled with the burden of justifying surgeries and medications.
This would allow the ACA to become a pool paid in by everyone and over time it could grow to the point where premiums could become so low that it would no longer be a burden to pay it for the majority of people.
It makes one wonder why 99% of our elected officials own stock in medical insurance...
I am tired of my bank trying to sell me life insurance.
Is it time for someone to "knock me off"?
It is like being forced to buy a newspaper when one can just get the news online.
Medical insurers are the problem with the ACA.
