Privatized MRI means way more machines that we need, my city has a dozen of the things; to the point where they have to advertize on TV trying to bring in customers. That drives up the price considerably. Plus MRI machines waste a lot of Helium; probably more than party balloons - the tech itself is horribly expensive! I know an MRI operator and it costs 10s of thousands of dollars every time they dump coolant- the shutdown and startup costs are crazy.
The cost of the MRI machine and it's operation don't matter; the profit margins will be the same either way and a competing market adds advertizing overhead, profit overhead, additional facilities overhead, additional staff and management overhead. Clearly tech like MRI can't be efficiently managed in the free market and it's religious dogma and greed that defends it...
The ACA isn't really about fixing medical care it addressed some of the insurance issues; the cost savings will be temporary.
Employer indentured servitude NEEDS TO END. It started to attract labor in the 1940s but it became a double edged sword, either trapping employees or the overhead cost of those shackles becoming a bargaining chip or a theft (cutting it after breaking past deals etc.)
