I read the article and this stuck out to me: “Keep in mind the fact that more than 150 million Americans are employed and their $2,000 per year in most cases would be happily supplied by the employer if that was their only health care obligation”
Where in the USA, can you get world-class care for $2000 (assuming you are not simply getting a check-up)? Even if you never have a medical emergency for 20 years, you would still only have $40,000. My brother was hospitalized a few months ago and his ambulance bill amounted to $800, and his total care was about $650,000 (he required two surgeries). I laughed out loud when he stated that employers would happily supply the $2000 per year, if it were their only obligation (I’m sure they would, what a deal).
[/QUOTE]What I like about his plan is that it creates an incentive for people to live healthier rather than not taking their health seriously. [/QUOTE]
What about the babies who are born with deadly defects, and are in need of both extensive and expensive medical treatment?
