It is impossible, let me repeat impossible, to have a free market without price discovery and comparison.

Absolutely! Free means competitive, where buyers can do competitive shopping [impossible under single payer].

It also means that the insurance market has to be free and competitive [no cartels, no collusion].

I still think that the best health insurance is what we used to call major medical that covers just about anything -- world wide -- between a steep deductibe and a limit. You can add regular health insurance to cover the steep major medical deductibe, depending on your financial condition.
