“One of the first duties of the physician is to educate the masses not to take medicine.” -- William Osler (1849-1919) - Often considered the Father of Modern Medicine
The simple solution to health care in America.
Both private and public insurance companies
Private companies and hospitals exist, and whomever wants to purchase the insurance purchases the insurance.
There is also government run health care. For those who cannot afford or do not want to purchase health care.
In Australia, they have both and the system works beautifully.
Right now doctors have an incentive to keep their patients sick. Because the sicker the patients, the more money they make, the more surgeries they do, the more drugs they prescribe.
In England the doctors get paid more to have healthier patients.
Traditional Chinese doctors got paid when their patients were healthy, and didn’t get paid when their patients were sick.
But in America, it is completely the opposite.
Insurance companies make more money by only insuring the healthy and paying for as little care as possible. And doctors make more money when you are sick.
How can this be called health care? I don’t think it can.
That is why I say all Americans have no true health care.
