BRAVO. Eliminate the overhead created and perpetuated the health insurance industry. Eliminate the someone else is paying for it syndrome that has infected the health care industry and patients like the plague.

3-5 administrative clerks per doctor says it all. To top it off the insurance industry clerks and health care clerks work & deal with each other so often it creates biased decision making and unholy alliances. It makes it easier to do things like double bill or deny coverage. It is this elitist alliance that advocates insured based health care time and time again. They are the impediment to progress.
