The US healthcare system can be reduced to two factors. [View all]

1) The insurance companies essentially control access to healthcare for most Americans.

2) The insurance companies charge high premiums, and they profit by denying access to healthcare for their customers.

And that is the essence of the US healthcare system. I am a Federal annuitant, with an FEHB company. Yes, I can literally go to any doctor, but if that doctor is not part of my PPO I will pay significantly more. And that extra cost is a big factor for many people.

And every time an insurance company denies care, they pay out less, which benefits only their bottom line.
