No. Insurance companies want the cost to be lower so they can afford to sell it to more customers.<quoted text>
But unions are people? Public sector unions are people? Define "people" then because a corporation, just like a union is nothing but people. It's semantics. But back to healthcare. Insurance companies ARE driving healthcare costs through the roof. Now Obamacare mandates you buy health insurance. How does that lower costs?
Government regulations are causing it to be more expensive:
-Requiring insurance companies to keep the insured's kids on a low cost plan until they are 26.
-Requiring that doctors comply with expensive HIPPA reporting and standards
-Requiring insurance companies to cover birth control
-Requiring insurance companies to cover pre-existing conditions
Patients are causing it to be more expensive:
-Smoking, overeating and drinking cause the vast majority of illnesses in this country. And the patients want the doctor to fix it with drugs and therapy and they want the insurance company to pay for it.
- Patients blindly accept the doctor's recommendations. They should take charge of their health and be responsible for their own fitness.
Look down at your belly and ask yourself: " Am I taking care of myself the best that I can?"
Again, It's your responsibility. Not the doctor or the insurance company or the government. It's yours.
