"Isn't this the kind of cost containment we should expect in the United States once government gets national health care here and discovers how expensive it is?"Opponents and smear campaigns would like us to think so.But actually all of the health insurance policies I am aware of already ration care. They are all capped with lifetime benefits of $1MM to $1.5MM. They also specify specific maximums for nearly every treatment option. This is rationing. We already have it. We are used to it.Why should govt insurance be any different?But it *is* different. We aren't talking about the situation where someone hits a lifetime maximum.
