Healthcare in this country is so expensive mostly because we have too much insurance, not too little. Insurance insulates the patient (consumer) from directly paying for their medical care (product). This separation removes a lot of healthy marked forces that are necessary to keep prices reasonable.
Insurance can also frustrate and distract doctors because dealing with insurance companies is laborious. It takes a lot of time and effort to talk to insurance companies, get authorizations, make referrals, and learn weird diagnosis codes.
Insurance creates more overhead because you need more computers, phone lines, office space and staff. In order to pay all the additional expenses, the doctor has to generate more revenue and he usually does that by seeing more patients or ordering more tests.
