Unfortunately, changes like these only focus on one piece of our very complex healthcare system. A system with many other moving pieces, including but not limited to: doctors, hospitals, drug manufacturers, prescription drug distributors, and medical device makers. Each of these stakeholders has a financial interest. They profit when medical services are rendered and prescriptions are filled. Health insurance companies make $$ when they sell insurance. Insurance rates, whether the coverage is for a house, a car, a life or a body, simply reflect the cost of repair. Safer drivers have lower premiums.
In order to address the escalating price of health insurance, we must look at the root cause: the escalating cost of health care. Stay tuned.
