Why the Private Health Insurance Industry Has to Go
Physicians for a National Health Program [PNHP]Link to more items from this source
Apr. 13, 2015
"After five years' experience with the ACA, we now know that insurers themselves are a major barrier to achieving the kind of access to affordable care that our population so desperately needs. Here are some of the major reasons why private health insurers warrant no further bailout by government and taxpayers. [1] Continued discrimination against the sick.... [2] Fragmentation, inefficiency, and exorbitant administrative overhead.... [3] Increasing costs for less coverage ... [4] Gaming the ACA for profits more than service to patients ... [5] Private insurance has priced itself out of the market.... [6] As their business plan dictates, insurers are leaving unprofitable markets without regard for patients' needs."
