11. Health insurance, the more medical costs are the larger the profits are. If they pay out $100

million and make a 10% profit for processing it they make $10 million. If they pay out $200 million and
make 10% profit they make $20 million profit.
It's like the cost plus military suppliers made in WWII. The higher the cost the more they profit. There is
no incentive to keep costs down.
