Actually, you're on to something there. Doctors are becoming more willing to work on a cash-pay basis with a discount than deal with the bureaucracy.
Going back farther, though, research the sixties/Kennedy/HMOs/Californi a. That was the root of it all. Prior to then, you had insurance for the big stuff and paid the doctor in full for the little stuff.
I barter with a general practitioner. I let him hunt.on my land and use my house there. I realize not.everyone will an have that arrangement but cash would work as well.

A lot of people are going cash just for the privacy aspect.

It takes only a couple of minutes online to see if a doctor or medical facility is in my insurance network, and only a couple of minutes more to check it out on Angie's List.
Haste makes waste!
And in such an emergency, delay or inadequate care causes death. Soooo many healthcare facilities and physicians are going to be 'out of network.'

The government intrusion into your private business really concerns me. Next time gun control becomes an issue they'll use your medical records against you. Another reason not to register.
Lord help future political candidates. The reigning party will dig into their records and use them everyway they can.
I also heard of a senior citizen that was rushed to the hospital and taken in through emergency services. Three days later she was discharged and handed a bill for something like $27K with the caveat that she was at no time an admitted patient, but only there for 'observation.'

That's not a well known fact....a person on Medicare needs to make sure her doc admits her into the hospital or they will classify it an an observation.
That's why it is so important for a person to be their own advocate and know the rules and regulations. There's also is another trick. If someone is really sick, the doc has the power to write"direct admit" which they will take you immediately ahead of ER patients who are not that bad. It's a good thing to have a good doc who can work with you.
