That's a nice opinion, but the facts are there are plenty of first world countries that have private health insurance that delivery the same quality of care for a fraction of the price. The commonality is price controls. When someone needs urgent medical attention they are in no position to shop prices.
I've consulted for many health insurance companies. I've worked specifically around cost of care and price transparency. Let's look at this statement:
"Your $1500 MRI is not a fair market price. That price contains a massive subsidy for people on government programs."
So how exactly does a hospital subsidize a gov't program? Most of them are not-for-profits and pay no taxes. Most Hospitals are fine with people on gov't programs because they usually have insurance of some sort. They charge $1500 for the MRI because it's not an open market.
What brings costs up is greed and inefficiency. Massachusetts was once the poster child for out of control health care costs. While people tout RomneyCare for bringing down costs in actuality that did very little to control costs. What did get costs under control was gov't restrictions passed years after he left office on health care premium increases. That forced insurance companies, hospitals, drug makers, medical device suppliers and doctors to renegotiate contracts. They went from being the state with the highest rise in health care costs to one of the lowest. Starve the beast and somehow they found a way to all make money.
