“The sooner people start paying for their own health care the sooner prices and practice will become reasonable.”

You’re absolutely correct. medical infrastructure, much like higher education infrastructure, has been built around an endless supply of government money being available.

When the consumer must pay for it, they will go for best value to them and the system will necessarily collapse under the burden of it’s unsustainable weight.

It is, to be sure, a bit tough on the folks in need of the more advanced medical are in the interim, but over the long run, it’s the only way to get the best medical care for the most people for a reasonable cost.

The problem is the government promises that people have gotten used to hearing and believing.

Aligning services, facilities, and costs with peoples ability to pay for it themselves is the only way to assure a long-term medical capability. Somewhere in there some form of medical insurance factors in, but not the way people are used to it doing so now.

It’s not just the government money, even insurance takes away the emphasis on getting good value for medical payments.
