I'd really like to see what premiums would look like for under-65-year-olds using Medicare reimbursement rates and Medicare's 2% to 3% overhead.

For 2012, Medicare spent $550 Billion to insure 50 million people , or $11,100 per person for coverage that's far more comprehensive than what most people under age 65 currently have.

Obviously, the health care costs for the average 50-year-old will be a lot lower than the 65-year-old and up population covered by Medicare.

Until we get universal health care, we're hosed.
