why single payer/medicare healthcare will never happen
« on: February 07, 2019, 11:13:13 AM »
I think it would be great if we can get it.
and I been supporting it for years
If you take a look at other countries, it work great and is cheap too


anyways the reason why it would never happen is:

1. you talking about getting rid of many healthcare insurance company (blue cross blue shield, humana, aetna, united, etc..)

2. getting rid of many administration job ( since there only one provider many people will lose their job)


those are the two reason, why i think the single payer will never happen
people don't want to lose their profit and jobs
they going lobby hard to keep what they have

what i mean by administration job

when you finish getting care
the hospital will try to bill the insurance
they will both go back and forth to settle a reason price

since it is a single payer, people will just pay flat rate
there will be no negotiation

and many other's administration job

Single payer system will happen when artificial intelligence and machine learning makes it possible to manage the administration better.

You act like health insurance is a crime. God forbid they make a profit! Everybody should be hanging by a thread only!

It's only a crime because the government got involved.

The democrats are pushing for it, but no one has a good foundation of how to go forth with it.  Also Trump is trying to dismantle the ACA which will eliminate families with pre-existed conditions.  Even worst. Good luck to single payer healthcare... it will not happen just because america has too much pride on working hard and not taking any handouts..thos e ideas...
