Health Care Expenditures
In 2005, personal health care expenditures were paid by private health insurance 36%, federal government 35%, state and local governments 11% , and out-of-pocket payments 15%. Source: National Center for Health Statistics
Health cared providers should take note.
46% of their income was derived from Federal or State Government ! As annoying as this might be if a goodly portion of this disappeared how would it affect your practice ?
Some may be recouped at least in Texas where the law allowing payments from others benefitting from ones referrals is now allowed.
The reasons for the old law should be obvious as an inflationary factor adding to cost of service. (In the case of primary care doctors it is IMO the right move).
The people want single payer health insurance ! (As the rest of the world seems to have).
