"In a free-market health insurance system you would choose just how much you want. And if you were wrong, for example choosing an insufficient amount of coverage for your actual needs, you'd go broke. "

It's called freedom of choice. Then you live with the consequences.

"As long as health care providers are required to treat patients regardless of ability to pay, the system is not a free-market system. "

Did I say in a free market system? We don't have a free market system today.

"Anyway, who in their right mind wants an unregulated, free market health care industry? "

How would you know, since we never had an unregulated modern healthcare system.

I will bet it would be far better than what we have today!
