The Illusion of Freedom that is Private Health Care Insurance

If you stick with private health care insurance, there will not be arrival at any capping of your health insurance premiums. Your health insurance premiums will, most definitely, grow over time at a rate higher than rate of inflation.

If doctors have to compete, such that doctors whose rosters become filled with persons who are on the public plan feel like ‘losers’, the quality of health care that is available to persons on the public plan will be lower than quality of health care available to persons on private plans.

Coexistence of a public plan with private health care plans produces an health care system consisting of two classes of health care quality, and anxieties over either of poor quality health care, or feasibility of loss of job that induces poor quality health care.

Health care for all is not socialism, is not a political statement, rather is an inalienable right that accrues to life.
