One of the main reasons for the high prices in health care today is the abuse of the system. The idea that you can go to the doctor for a 20 dollar co-pay, this was not what insurance was supposed to be about. If we would pony up for our simple office visits, young and old, think of all the money that we would save. If insurance was treated as it should be, insurance against a cancer, or an extreme injury, the money would be there for all concerned.
This is like expecting your car insurance company to pay for four new tires!
