I don’t recall ever hearing what this new health plan would look like. Many plans have deductibles of $5,000 or even $10,000. With the level of income that we are determined to insure, I don’t think a large deductible will eliminate the emergency room visits or increase preventative care. My own plan has a $5,000 deductible. The hospital kicks in the first $2,000, and this goes a long way if you’re healthy or frugal with your doctor’s visits; it’s a shared responsibility. If prevention is so cost effective, let’s subsidize the doctor at the pre-problem stage and greatly reduce our care cost, up to $1,000 a person, per year. The answer is not more insurance, it is making health care more reasonable for the significant percentage of healthy people. Socialism is the government taking responsibility for you, whether you are responsible or not.
