The high cost of healthcare in this country is largely because we have too much insurance, not too little. With”insurance” the patient (consumer) is separated from knowing the cost of their healthcare (product) and this separation removes a lot of healthy marked forces that are necessary to keep prices reasonable.
Not only that, but when doctors accept insurance payments they are quickly burdened with a lot of extra work like filing paperwork, dealing with insurance companies, getting authorizations, learning weird diagnosis codes, making phone calls and managing literally dozens of other distractions that frustrate the doctor’s ability to tend to the patient. These impede good care.
In order to pay for the computers, phone lines, office space and staff just to manage the insurance payments, the doctor has to have high fees or see a high volume of patients.
