This isn’t all bad. The sooner people start paying for their own health care the sooner prices and practice will become reasonable.

You must not yet be at the stage of life where a lengthy hospital stay becomes more of a possibility, and would bankrupt even individuals with decent assets and savings.

Yeah, it's called a free market. You want medical treatment, pay out of pocket, or buy insurance if you think you won't be able to afford a big ticket item. Or die. In a free market you get to buy or not. In fascism you are threatened with fines and jail if you fail to pay the government-industry complex.

Paying for Health care that does not include hospital stays or surgery is not paying for health care. It’s giving gravy money to Insurance Company’s.

It’s like buying car insurance that only covers a scratch and wont replace a fender.

“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.

That is not going to happen, it is not a free market with obamacare, Medicare, Medicaid etc... Prices will continue to climb.
