7. Addendum -- cost
Afterthought: I pay directly just over $5000 for my FEHB. That means that if I weren't giving BC/BS 30% I'd save $1500. Every year.

And if we can get rid of the stranglehold drug companies have on us (only 2 industrialized countries allow drug commercials), I'd save probably another $750 (at least) per year.

And we haven't looked at the extra bookkeeping cost of my doctor doing 6 or 8 different insurance submissions.

Want to know what's wrong with our economy? That's $2250 I'm NOT spending at local businesses. I haven't bought a new car since 1997.

Want to know how we'll pay for the new plan? It's in that salary BC/BS just paid their CEO. Even the countries having private companies doing the payments don't permit profit.
