- The real answer is profit. You don't get quality by selling **…
And that's exactly why healthcare shouldn't be privatized or for profit. No essential service should be, and we figured that out a long time ago with things like utilities. Not sure why America insists on having third world quality treatment for most of its citziens.

"best doctors" LMFAO THIS NIGGA AIN'T NEVA BEEN TO 'MERKA
I'm pretty 'right' but, he's correct. Don't be an apologist for bullshit.
Flattening their prices helps nobody - it's essentially a benign form of fraud. I agree that the quality of healthcare is incredibly important (and quite high throughout most of the U.S.), but if hospitals need so much money for particular services, they should be charging high prices for those services, not charging high prices for unrelated stuff. Sure, a top-tier heart surgeon is expensive, but that cost should fall entirely on the person/insurance covering the surgery, not the guy in the next wing over who stayed for one night with an IV in.
Basically, I'm fine paying high prices for high-quality important services, but if I come in for a less important service, it should be priced significantly lower. The price of performing proper sanitization and obeying modern medical practice is significantly less than what is currently charged for low-level services, even when accounting for non-amortized hospital running costs.
A top-tier, high-quality surgery should be priced at tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, due to specialized equipment and the work done by highly-trained medical professionals. A 50 cent bag of saline should cost a dollar, max. Keeping their costs and prices separate is standard procedure in many industries, especially those which are government-regulated.
Having really high prices for cheap shit keeps surgery and other costs down so the insurance will pay it
If you were an insurer, you'd probably pay for a $2,000 proceedure and $1,000 in other stuff as well, but you'd be less inclined if all of the cost was just in one single thing
I guess I'm saying that that's what I see as the problem - that insurance companies have created a demand for these flattened prices.
In a world where no insurance existed (not that I advocate such a thing, it's pretty unrealistic), everyone would pay for exactly what they received, because that's how businesses work.
In a world where everyone had exactly the same insurance and attended exactly the same hospitals, there would be no such thing as itemized prices - hospitals would generate expense reports and provide them to insurance companies, and these companies would pay them using the premiums they received.
This is similar to how systems like the British NHS work, except that instead of an insurance company there's the government, and instead of premiums there's taxes. And, of course, this leads to the government controlling most hospitals, much like what would eventually happen with a one hospital+one insurer system.
In the in-between world we currently occupy, however, hospitals are still trying to make blanket claims by flattening expenses over multiple customers (because this is what insurance providers want), but this leads to problems when some people don't have insurance, or when insurance providers refuse to cover something completely. Costs become per-person rather than per-item, and so they system no longer works like a business.
I agree that Americans should 100% buy health insurance, because the cost of not doing so at the moment is so high. However, I'm also saying that such risks should be mitigated or removed, either by changing how the hospital-insurer relationship works, or by changing how people pay for their healthcare. For the Obama administration, the answer was "create a government insurance provider which operates within the pre-existing market," but I doubt that playing by a broken market's rules will end up fixing it.

Call Me Maybe?
- I love social retards like you House parties suck because …
although you got thumbed down by the cunty way you said that, its somehow true.. It sometimes amazes me how people in here just can't get along with other people, but they don't do shit to make it better. Just come here and shit post about how hard is to have a social life or gf, sometimes it is even cringy. Maybe they just do it to fit in FJ. Better than nothing
Learning to socialize is pretty difficult though. When you're that introverted, it's almost like you have to straight up lie to people. A lot of people like that stay that way because they just can't bring themselves to care about what's going on in the lives of their classmates or coworkers, or their opinions of movies, sports, etc. In order to get to know people and make friends, you have try to talk to them about these things, but it can feel incredibly fake and disingenuous to you because the truth is that you really just don't care. Once you ask about it they'll start talking about these things and tell you things that you don't care to know, and that don't affect you in the slightest. It's a bit like forcing yourself to eat food that you think tastes like shit, so that you'll eventually get used to it because it's healthy.
I usually know everyone at every house party that I go to and they know me, but I just have trouble talking and socializing with people when I'm in a large group.
Oh so you're just autistic then?
I've been to parties with 'friend groups'
They still suck and the only pro is free booze
Fortunately for me I don't really give a fuck about fitting in and haven't since high school.
People suck, plain and simple. Always needing you to go somewhere with them or do something... why not just be a convenient person to talk to about actual problems now and then instead of wasting time pretending to give a fuck about my life over coffee?

Shill learns how IDs work
Works both ways, conservatives call Hillary all kinds of names.
Because she's linked to murders and starting war, not insulting rosie o donald.
Sorry, I forgot that ad hominem is only okay when it's towards the worse candidate.
No, this is justification. Name one thing Trump did as bad as Hillary. She earns those names by using lies, murder, and corruption to further her campaign.
I'm not even arguing that Hillary is in any way better than Trump.
Well, you're arguing that they're on an equal level to be insulted, and that Drump is just as bad as, let's say, Killary.
When you look at trump's it is an insult to his last name, and hinting at the fact that Trump's ancestors were immigrants. This would be justified, except Trump is against illegal immigrants specifically.
On the other hand, Killary is an earned nickname, as she is directly linked to the deaths at benghazi, but also the large amount of murders tied to people testifying against the Clinton foundation.
I'm just arguing that one group does not have the right to insult the other group's candidate if they get upset when the reverse happens. Call Hillary fucking Satan for all I care, I just think it's hypocritical to complain when someone calls Trump a mean name in return.
And I'm completely serious when I say this... can you explain what you mean by "the large amount of murders tied to people testifying against the Clinton foundation"? As far as I've looked into it, Vince Foster is the only example of genuinely shady deaths related to the Clintons.
Him plus the other three in benghazi, and if you just want to deal with absolutes, you can contribute her to the last two wars America fought in, as she wanted both of them. I'm trying to be clear about this. Trump and Clinton are not equal on deserving name calling based on what the names are. Fuck, annoying orange works better than drumpf, but the fact is. Hillary is tied to horrible things, and Trump is tied to being a dick.
Benghazi was a bit shady and she did support the last few wars (but you can't blame the wars entirely on her, it's not like she was the only one in favor). But yeah, "Killary" carries more meaning than "Drumpf". Anyways I don't think any of these people you mentioned were related to the Clinton foundation.
I gotta get to bed but I'd be happy to carry on this conversation in the morning.
