    wonder if the group included any well paid specialists who are willing to sacrifice and take a pay cut and work for a salary? FFS is a HUGE cost escalator.

    But not nearly as much of a cost escalator as government interference that create price distortions and moral hazards.

    What exactly do insurance companies provide in exchange for the massive cut they take off the top? Anything of value —– or is it just all negative except for the big payoffs for CEO’s, executives and shareholders?

    For a lot of people, after the premiums wipe out their bank account, there is no money left for co-pays,deductibles, out of pocket etc.
    That’s not health care— that’s extortion.
