I don't want insurance companies dictating what doctor I can see, or what medications I can have prescribed to me. I don't want insurance companies to deny me healthcare because I have a preexisting medical condition. The bottom line with the insurers is their bottom line!
People's healthcare should not be profited from!
I'm not saying that doctor's and other medical staff shouldn't be paid for their services, but the insurers take a huge amount of money from people and then deny certain people's claims or just drop their insurance because of pure greed!
Why are there 2.2 people in billing for every doctor in the US?
I would much rather have the private insurance companies go away and have non-profit government run healthcare plans where I can choose my doctor and all decisions are made between me and my doctor......not with private, for profit insurance companies that put out commercials claiming how great they are when in reality profits are their main goal. Does anyone actually love their insurance company?
We really should have a single payer system for healthcare but the Republicans squashed that idea because they want everything to be privatized so that profits can be made. Sometimes I think that if they could control the air, they would charge you a monthly access fee for it and if you didn't pay......oh well.....
Keeping the system as it was degrades people's healthcare and/or kills people that the insurers consider a risk.....
Healthcare should be a right, regardless of income!
