If the states would each accredit a new medical school, expand seating by 25-50% in core medical programs and such, we could easily start matching Cuba on the professional supply side. The AMA and others won't go for that because it would mean forcing highly paid medical professionals to get competitive on their salaries and such. How about the states start applying price gouging laws? How about they start requiring posting of all fee schedules at medical establishments so consumers can price shop? How about they start throwing doctors in prison for quietly bringing in partners who are out of network so the practice can bill at much higher rates?
Just as radical, how about we start demanding that health insurance act like real insurance. Meaning...
1. It only covers things which are reasonably outside of the person's control.
2. It covers them absolutely past the deductible which should be reasonable.
3. If the buyer becomes indigent once the emergency happens, the insurance company cannot stop paying just because premiums are no longer being paid and the insurance company cannot lawfully back bill for premiums lost when the insured incident happened and the buyer was unable to pay.
