It's because health care is not as black and white as fire rescue and policing services. For the most part, everyone needs the same level of fire and police protection. Individuals are equally likely to need police protection, or to need the fire department to put out a fire. It is also not logical for an individual to hire their own police/fire departments to protect them.

The same cannot be said when it comes to health care. The level of health care needed depends on many factors that are within an individuals control (i.e. lifestyle, eating habbits, exercise, etc. etc) It is also reasonable, and logical to have your own personal doctor and pay them as neccesary when you get sick. It has been done like that since the beginning.
