RH: The simple truth is -- collected premiums need to cover outgoing expenses.M: Only if you are a for profit enterpise.Please explain where a non-profit enterprise gets the money to pay for expenses that go beyond the funding they take in?We need equity in access to health services - those who need the services should get them, not only those who can pay for them.You don't need to involve insurance companies into that equation.
