fuck the insurance companies.
not really-- you can opt to no buy health insurance and pay a very reasonable fee.
why a fee?
because uninsured patients in emergency rooms are a huge cost driver for hospitals
but guess what-- if you can't afford insurance there are subsidies to help you.
and companies can only make a limited profit now-- if they make more they send their customers a refund.
lastly, you can't be denied coverage for preexisting conditions.
i don't see the problem here. well maybe if everyone were responsible to pay for their health care and emergency rooms weren't mandated to treat patients regardless of coverage we wouldn't need the fee for the uninsured. but i figure those who can afford health care without insurance can help the general welfare.
