17. Think this through for a minute...
somebody has to pay the providers-- Medicare, Medicaid, insurance, your own cash, or someone else.

Whoever pays has to get the money from somewhere. That would be from you and everyone else covered, or from the taxpayers.

So, if your payments (i.e. premiums) don't end up paying all your expenses, someone else's will.

Who will that someone else be?

The whole point of any pooling system, public or private, is that the money taken into the pool has to pay the expenses. You will have to pay for coverage no matter who it's from.
