Re:Don’t get me wrong. It may work out ok for you, and if so, go with God and all that. It’s certainly nice to have the privilege of doing that, if you 1) can afford it and 2) live in a geographic area where it’s possible and 3) you don’t have known medical issues that would make it a problem.

Thanks for that (reply and tone).

Continuing in the vein of using our imagination beyond single payer for all being the only hope.


Could this be covered by tax credit or voucher for those who couldn't afford it otherwise?

If I recollect, some (many?) pre-existing conditions are ok on (some) medishare type programs.

What about publically funding high risk pool options for the corner cases in the population?


Would all this serve to improve costs, efficiency, access? Would dealing (mostly) in a direct pay, non-3rd party payer generate more favorable market signals for both supplier and customer?

Would this improvfe the climate that is burning out Drs? Would this favorably incentivize and reinvigorate morale of Dr's as discussed in that direct pay model Youtube video?
