I understand that mandatory health care coverage helps a lot of people by evening out outliers in insurance company costs and keeping the general insurance premiums down. I previously served in the military which has as you may know Tricare. Tricare pays out to health providers at cost for the procedures provided and thus keeps the cost of premiums low.
From what I have observed civilian insurance companies charge the premiums they want to and also pay health service providers whatever inflated costs they also have making things economically more difficult than necessary for the consumer. I have not involved myself with Obamacare as of yet because I feel that this is an injustice. I may now be forced to participate not because I need health care but because of penalty fees. I don’t agree with government subsidies and I know i couldn’t afford insurance without, I just find it frustrating to be forced into contributing to the national deficit.
I know I’m beating around the bush here but why do we have to pay so much into an unregulated system just to live our lives?
